MODELING AND SIMULATION OF SINGLE SPOOL JET ENGINE
A previously validated single spool,non-after burning turbojet engine model GEXX is converted to MATLAB / SIMULINK to illustrate the benefits of a graphical simulation system with a graphical user interface (GUI). The model simulates the dynamics of burner, compressor, turbine, and the gas volume after the turbine(before the nozzle) with compressor bleed, variable compressor stators and variable nozzle area as the inputs.The engine model can be used in four ways:# As a nonreal-time engine model for testing engine control algorithms. # As an embedded model within a control algorithm or observer. # As a system model for evaluating engine sensor and actuator models. # As a subsystem in a powertrain or vehicle dynamics model. Although developed and validated for a specific engine (the high speed spool of the GE16), the modeling procedure is generic enough to be used for a wide range of jet engines. The model which we used as reference for our model is created by matching the basic performance of the engine. The model allows varying the Power Lever Angle(PLA) and altitude during the simulation and the performance is recorded as the time history of the different variables. Similarly, the model was simulated at different flight velocities. The performance of the engine was studied by comparing the output variables at different PLA, altitude and velocity settings. The dynamics of the system can be clearly studied by using this SIMULINK model.
