Automated Virtual Testing Rig Incorporating Multi-level Models of Gas Turbine Engines
Samara National Research University, Department of Aircraft Engine Theory, Samara, Russian Federation
This article describes the multi-level approach to developing the virtual testing rig of gas turbine engines and power plants. The described virtual rig is developed on the basis of computer-aided system of thermogasdynamic calculations and analysis ASTRA, developed at Samara National Research University. Existing testing rig is widely used in educational process to supply the students’ research activities with the information on engine operation in a variety of ambient and flight conditions during transients. An approach to upgrading the virtual testing rig is proposed. The described modifications would provide the capabilities to solve more complex research tasks, including investigation of influence of geometry of engine elements on the engine characteristics, multidisciplinary investigations, identification of engine models using the results of experimental investigations and identification of sources of engine deficiencies during the development phase of engine designing.
