You The several series of PW4000 high bypass turbofan engine have used so far in many aircrafts. These commercial engines have played a crucial role on passenger and freight transportations. Namely, these engines are closely related to the environment impacts and security of energy supply. In this article, exergoeconomic analysis which is useful tool to investigate existing potential for improvement of the a system efficiency were carried out. The assesment, design and optimization of energy consuming systems are performed by means of these analyses. Therefore, thermo-economic costs were assigned to existing exergetic values of PW400 engine. Also exergo-economic performance parameters were evaluated. Finally, exergoeconomic deputy parameters were examined to understand relations with exergo-economic parameters. Based on the results of exergo-economics analysis, for Fan and exhaust, specific thrust costs are estimated 5.7051 $/hkN and 68.45$/hkN respectively. Also exergo-economics factor of PW4000 is found 7.958 % , while relative cost difference is determined at highest rate with 24.458 % for combustion chamber . With examination relations between economic variables and exergo-economic performance parameters, the change between 0.6 and 1.2 $/kg in the fuel price leads to increase the exhaust and fan specific thrust costs with 82.4701 $/hkN and 5.4332 $/hkN respectively. It is expected that conclusions of this study are helpful to notify exergo-economic impact of PW4000 engine Also, it may be benchmarking for similar gas turbine engines.
