The subject of dynamometer and engine testing is complex, and engines are getting more and more complicated with the involvement of modern technology. The low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions without compromising the performance are the driving factors for the most modern engines. The testing of these modern engines is becoming more complex in nature as technology advances. In olden days, the engines were tested in open shed probably at the back of the assembly line. The modern test cells are complex and full of complex electronics and dedicated instrumentation assigned to measure targeted parameters. Computers and robotic mechanisms have taken the place of manual engine testers. More sophisticated test cell management is now in place to evaluate the performance of modern engines. I started my career in dynamometer field way back in 1984 and continued till 2003. My total experience of thirty-two years reinforced my knowledge in industrial products such as compressors, industrial pumps, dynamometers, and material handling equipment and as software consultant. I encountered a number of difficulties while I was new in dynamometer field. Aspiring new technology was a challenge as there were very few publications dedicated to dynamometers and engine testing. Moreover, I noticed that an incumbent from the technical college entering the engine and dynamometer field as a novice had to face many challenges in acquiring required knowledge to understand the complex instrumentation and mechanisms.
