Optimisation of Engine Power Offtake by Secondary Power System Design,
BRITISH AEROSPACE AIRCRAFT GROUP PRESTON (ENGLAND) WARTON DIV
This paper examines the configuration constraints presented to a systems engineer when designing a Secondary Power System, with particular reference to the minimising of engine power offtake. It briefly discusses the effects of power offtake on the engine and looks at current solutions available to the systems designer. The paper defines a Secondary Power System which is optimised for a twin engined, agile, combat aircraft. Author
