Abstract:

The third phase of an investigation to determine optimum equations to be used in engine simulators for operational flight trainers has resulted in the development of unscaled d-c analog computer diagrams which are applicable to turbojet and turboprop engine simulations. These computer diagrams are based on simplified versions of the theoretical equations for engine components compressors, burners, etc.5 which were developed during the second phase of this investigation. The method of engine simulation using these unscaled analog computer diagrams has been compared with current methods of engine simulation, and it has been found to be more flexible and more general than the other methods. This study recommends that a simulator of the design proposed in this report based on an existing engine should be constructed and tested it also recommends that the operational flight trainer manufacturer be supplied with more detailed information on power plant operation including sets of steadystate data for the condition of the gas at the input and output of each engine component and including component operating characteristics component maps.
