Strategies for Cost Effective, Compliant and Competitive Operation of Engine Compressors in the 21st Century: A Micro Perspective
Based on experiences, this paper offers a micro or close up view of AETC's best guess of how the engine-compressor room of the 21st Century might look. After first identifying important emerging technologies, this paper reviews AETC's related experiences. It then describes typical current engine-compressor systems and the opportunities for performance and reliability enhancements afforded by emerging technologies when properly integrated into engine-compressors and associated sub-systems. Finally, the paper will review the benefits in competitiveness and compliance maintenance provided by such a modern integrated system.
