Mathematical Model Development of TMM25-Single Shaft Turbojet Engine


Article Preview

A nonlinear mathematical model with thermodynamic relations permitting an accurate assessment of the dynamic influence on performance is developed in this study. The model is used within the framework of engine design in the development stage and in implementation stage. The use of simulations can give an invaluable insight into transient response and control problems; a significant saving is achieved with minimum test bed hardware development without endangering an engine. Successful simulations have been carried out using the proposed algorithm; an application utilizing Object Orientated Programming (OOP) was developed. The results obtained by the present developed model are in fair agreement with available experimental data.
