Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In the applications of a turboprop it has a good propulsion efficiency to reduce the fuel cost Therefore it is a proper choice for a short-range flight that doesn’t need large thrust to fly at a fast speed With the growing interest in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) the turboprop is also a potential engine in this field During a flight the ambient condition of the air density and temperature vary with changes in altitude and further affect both flight and engine performance This study focused on any aspect that alternating the engine performance in addition to compressor surge or stall due to the alternating flow rate or the temperature limit of the turbine blade a combination of the flight performance has been investigated The control logic of the engine is required to provide sufficient power and prevent the operating point from exceeding any structural limit to keep the engine operating safely This study based on numerous aspects of the effect of the engine and developed a minimum of fuel supply control logic
