Abstract:

Characteristics of aircraft with integrated regenerative engine propulsion systems and aircraft with nonregenerative turboshaft engines were determined in order to assess the relative advantages and disadvantages of the engines in a utility transport helicopter application. Conceptual designs of aircraft, powered by regenerative engines and nonregenerative engines of approximately 1000 shp, were based on existing and future Army mission requirements for a typical utility transport helicopter. Comparative weight and performance parameters, reliability aspects, maintenance requirements, life- cycle cost and cost effectiveness for various missions, and overall mission effectiveness and system cost were assessed for these aircraft.
