Experimental Capacity / Teaching Objectives
ATICO have developed a turbo jet engine test stand to provide a cost effective method of testing the performance of an operational aero jet engine. The turbo jet test stand is mounted on a wheeled trolley allowing it to be moved to an operational area or stored in a convenient location.
A trolley mounted single shaft turbojet designed for flight is to be supplied so as to demonstrate the turbojet principle. It is to be instrumented, so as to all allow a performance analysis of the turbojet at various speeds to be undertaken. The unit should alternatively be provided with a physical mimic diagram plate or be instrumented for data acquisition and a digital mimic diagram. Thrust produced must greater than the range up to 230N and be measured electronically. Speed is to be up to 110,000 rpm and full power pressure is to be over 2 bar. The fuel is to be kerosene.
