Abstract
Candent Technologies has proposed a high performance small turbine engine capable of achieving significant improvements in specific fuel consumption. By means of a unique configuration, the engine is able to attain improved fuel consumption at part power conditions. The unique configuration, along with an optimized thermodynamic cycle, also promises to reduce the cost, overall weight and size of the engine. The ratings, performance characteristics, and physical size of the engine make it ideally suited for a wide range of both military and commercial applications. The Phase I program performs the preliminary design of a demonstrator engine, with the Phase II program producing a concept demonstrator prototype.
