MT 553 TURBO JET ENGINE, 200N Thrust
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The engine is a small turbo jet engine with radial flow compressor and an axial flow turbine as in modern jet plane.

Inlet air through an orifice flow measuring device is compressed by a single stage radial flow compressor. The turbine is air started and run on jet A fuel. The turbine unit is complete with control and monitoring instruments including engine data terminal and automatic start unit. The turbine runs on ceramic bearings. Lubrication is provided by jet oil in the fuel, and no separate lubrication system is required.

An Electronic Control Unit (ECU) controls the basic turbine operation. Additional instrument are provided for monitoring and controlling the engine performance.

A touch screen computer with an interface unit, and software are provided for speed control, data display and analysis, and to assist the ECU.

Transparent engine cover and over speed shut down are provided.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Understanding the thermodynamic process
  • Static thrust vs turbine speed
  • Power input and output and propulsive efficiency.
