US Patent:
2013019, Aug 1, 2013
Filed:
Jan 26, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/359251
Inventors:
Lucas Micah Newlon - Raleigh NC,
Bradley John Will - Peoria IL,
Sudarshan Aravamuthan Maiyur - Cary NC,
Assignee:
CATERPILLAR, INC. - Peoria IL
International Classification:
G01M 17/00
B62D 63/02
B60K 17/10
G06F 11/00
US Classification:
180307, 701 328
Abstract:
A brake system and method includes a test mode for determining a capacity of the brake system provided on a machine having a hydrostatic drive. A hydrostatic drive target differential pressure range is determined to simulate a test torque. A machine ground speed limit, hydrostatic drive actual differential pressure, and actual ground speed of the machine are determined. An output pressure of the hydrostatic pump is modulated to drive the hydrostatic drive actual differential pressure toward the hydrostatic drive target differential pressure range. A first test fault condition is determined when the actual ground speed exceeds the machine ground speed limit. A second test fault condition is determined when the hydrostatic drive actual differential pressure is outside the hydrostatic drive target differential pressure range.
