Aero Engines

Whole Engine Aspects of Gas Turbines Including Secondary Systems, Operation and Controls

The simulation of whole engine behavior is a key element in the chair’s research. Activities and interests within this area are focused on:

  • Fully integrated component zooming
  • Evaluation of component deterioration
  • Assessment of new gas turbine engine concepts
  • Transient simulation
  • Engine control

Simulations on synthesis models of gas turbines are mainly performed with the performance code GTlab.
