Abstract:

Results of experimental research performed on the Double Leg Elbow Amplifier DLEA are presented. The DLEA with a straight active leg, was operated in a closed configuration. Tests were conducted with hot gas as a working medium, and two amplifiers were coupled and tested as a two stage amplifier. The DLEA was optimized for power gain. In addition, analytical techniques were expanded to include the effect of the splitter on the DLEA performance. It was concluded that the optimized Double Leg Elbow Amplifier would be excellent in control applications demanding high mass flow gains and high power gains especially when used to control gasses at extremely high temperatures.
