Gas turbine characterisation and simulation

Research areas

Temporary Supervisor

Dr John Pye


This project will make use of Ashley Kearton's nice gas turbine that was
constructed as a final-year project in 2007. The aim of the project is
to build a system-level model of the turbine such that you can accurately
predict its output for a range of inputs such as fuel rate, load, etc.
You will need to gather a set of experimental data from running the
turbine to help you in determining performance parameters for the system.
