Parametric Performance of Ultra-light Gas Turbine Power Plant for Heavy Lift Multicopters Flight Systems Using Astra - Russian Aviation Engine Optimization Software
Department of Theory of Aircraft Engine, Samara University, Samara, Russia
A detailed parametric analysis was performed on entire performance cycle model of micro gas turbine power plant. The parametric analysis was studied using Russian Software named ASTRA. Evaluation of parameters on both design and operation condition was performed. The parameters focused here are power output, compression work, specific fuel consumption and thermal efficiency. Various stages such as use of Intercooler, Pre-heater and their optimal influence on thermodynamics were performed. The task was to optimize the maximum output in free turbine power by simulating various cycles of compressor pressure ratios for centrifugal compressor, ambient temperature in various altitude; air-fuel mix ratio and turbine inlet temperature. The results are analysed and presented in this article, the Analysis known as on-design analysis. The compressor uses 66% of turbine work output. The research analysis focuses on reducing the use of power output by compressor and maximizes the power output by free turbine. The results could be summarized as increase in gas turbine thermal efficiency does not always improve the gas turbine efficiency. Optimum power increase of up to 3% was improved and improvement in fuel efficiency improved about 4%.
