Shot me 3 deer!!!
Hey all, I was wondering if someone could go into depth w/ duty cycle. I've never really understood it!!
In what context?if duty cycle is pretty much a ratio of time on vs time off, how is it possible to have a duty cycle of 120%?
I use to feel the same way , that 100% is it all it can do till I saw my fluke meter with the proble in the injector hit 103% on more then one car , granted it could be a calculation error or a fluke with the fluke but have seen itIn what context?
It's absolutely impossible to achieve 120% duty cycle, you get to 100% and the injector (or other component like a purge valve, EGR etc) is being energized constantly.
There simply is no 120% Duty Cycle. (Think of the silly things we used to say when we were 7, like "double infinity"[neener] )
But you could arrive at a theoretical value of 120% Duty Cycle as the result of an ECU calcualtion for fuel delivery requirements and injector flow rates plugged into the calibration.
