The paper is devoted to substantiation of the method of power calculation of the electric motor of losses compensation of test stand of helicopter tail shaft.The paper contains experimental oscillograms of instantaneous powers in characteristic places of the test stand, their comparison with the power diagram of the electric drive of the stand. According to this method of calculation the asynchronous variable-frequency electric drive for test stand of helicopter tail shaft was designed and implemented at the JSC «MVZ named after M.L. Mil».


Electric drive of losses compensation, test stand of helicopter tail shaft, power calculation of the electric motor.
