This paper describes the application of an automatic control system to the Ford 5B test. A sequence timer and pneumatic controllers are used to accomplish more than 100 changes in engine speed, load, and temperatures throughout the 192 hr of test. Flexibility of the system, its cost, and maintenance are also discussed.
