Trends in Air Turbine Starters for Large Turbofan Engines 921975
Methodology development from analysis using both starter parameter trends and auxiliary system features can be applied to focus future starter development efforts. This analysis method can be used to devise improvements to the starter system and its supporting systems and equipment. Results of historic development trends of air turbine starter characteristics, parameters and features are examined for basic trends and for state-of-the art limits. This analysis of parameter relationships and of current examples breaks-down paradigms to realize previously unseen component and system advances.
The data from analysis provides a new platform for starter development that can bring maximum overall value to the customer.
