Abstract—This work deals with verification of a proposed measuring method, as well as calibration and linearization of a sensor. The proposed torque measurement method is based on the use of a measuring element of our own design. In order to obtain as much data as possible, the engine was fitted with a combustion pressure sensor allowing the engine torque to be monitored. In order to install the pressure sensors and the engine torque sensor, it was necessary to modify individual parts of the engine. This article describes only part of the ongoing measurements taken to gain further new findings.
