Compatibility of AGT 1500 and TME AGT 1500A engine forward and rear modules and control units was successfully demonstrated during interchangeability testing conducted between 11 July and 1 August 1989. The interchangeability test consisted of steady-state and transient evaluation of various module configurations as specified in government contract DAC-1000001 of one AGT 1500 and one AGT 1500A TME automotive gas turbine selected to participate. Interchangeability testing of the standard electronic control unit and the TME digital electronic control unit DECU was also conducted. Steady- state engine performance demonstrated improved SFC at part power and idle with operation of the TME DECU. Trim power demonstrated for each configuration tested revealed acceptable requirements for vehicle mobility. Engine mechanical data was also found to be acceptable.
