Abstract: This paper aims at analyzing the magnitude of the loop power-flow across the axles of an automobile when varying the roads drag, from theoretical and experimental point of view. This article presents a series of theoretical, mathematical aspects of the interrelationship of the studied values. It also presents the vehicles test equipment to reflect the dependence between the value of self-generated torque and roads drag. At the end of the paper, a brief analysis of the information presented in the article is performed and some conclusions are summarized.

Keywords: loop power-flow, tests, transducers.
