Title: STI-TP-1127-Advanced Turboshaft Engine/Drivetrain Modeling Technique for Real Time Rotorcraft Simulation
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W911W6-10-C-0037
Award Amount: $69,988.00
 

Abstract:

Simulation is an indispensable tool in the development and evolution of modern rotorcraft designs and flight training activities, with the gas turbine engine being a particularly demanding component to simulate. To provide for enhanced simulation fidelity regarding this critical component, the Army has identified a need for a generic turboshaft engine/drivetrain model. Such a model will be used to support real-time rotorcraft flight simulation activities that can be initiated early in the design cycle. To meet this need, Systems Technology, Inc. is pleased to propose GenEng, a physics-based model of generic architecture that can be readily integrated into industry standard simulations. When fully developed, GenEng will be a gas turbine engine model that is a careful blend of performance requirements, physics, and abstraction. GenEng will feature a virtual test stand through which the model can be executed as a stand alone application to ease checkout and parameter tuning functions. A beta version of GenEng will be created in Phase 1 and integrated into a real-time rotorcraft simulator to demonstrate feasibility of the approach via a limited piloted simulation of start up and low speed characteristics. An alpha version of the model currently exists as a proof of concept.
