A MEANS OF TESTING TURBOJET ENGINE STARTER PERFORMANCE

1963-11-01
HISTORICAL
ARP715
This Recommended Practice covers a means of determining the performance acceptability of new production or overhauled starters that will be used for cranking turbine engines and is intended for use where torque measuring equipment is not available or desirable. This method determines acceptability of the overall performance of the starter on a flywheel test stand, rather than the performance at specific speed conditions. It allows a slight variation of output torque outside specified limits, as long as the overall performance is up to standard.

AUXILIARY POWER SYSTEM CONSIDERATIONS FOR ADVANCED MILITARY AIRCRAFT

1993-06-01
CURRENT
AIR1603
This document provides a brief description of the auxiliary power equipment that is available with enough description and pertinent comments to enable an engineer to make logical preliminary selection of the appropriate equipment for advanced military aircraft programs. The information has been kept as brief as possible to include the maximum amount of equipment in a relatively short document. It is not intended to replace textbook design analysis or detailed information available from the equipment suppliers. The document describes auxiliary power equipment. Auxiliary power is defined as follows: "Those elements of secondary power [defined as all aircraft nonpropulsive power generation and transmission] related to main engine bleed air and shaft power extraction or power generation separate from the main engines. Included are engine bleed air systems, remote engine driven gearboxes, engine starting systems, auxiliary power units, and emergency power systems."

CURRENT
AIR1087B
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) presents a discussion of drag torques of engine accessories operating at cold temperature. Various conditions of temperature, speed, and acceleration rates are reviewed showing the merits of each method and recommending a standard test method.

COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT AUXILIARY POWER UNIT INSTALLATIONS

1991-01-29
CURRENT
AIR4204
This Aerospace Information Report (AIR) reviews the factors to be considered in determining the location and arrangement for auxiliary power unit (APU) installations for airborne applications and reviews requirements for flight suitability. As treated in this discussion, the APU normally includes a power section (or engine), a starting system, an electronic control unit (ECU), a gearbox with accessory mounting pads, and an oil cooling system. The accessories that are driven by the APU, such as CSD's (constant speed drives), alternating current (AC) generators, hydraulic pumps, or air compressors, are not covered here except insofar as they make demands on the APU. The various installation components and systems that are covered here are outlined by the table of contents. Turbine-type APU's are by far the most highly developed and universally used airborne units, so their installation will dominate the discussion in this document.

GUIDE FOR DETERMINING ENGINE STARTER DRIVE TORQUE REQUIREMENTS

1962-09-01
CURRENT
AIR781
A general discussion is presented herein, to outline the starter functions which are necessary for a successful engine start. In addition, sample calculations are included to illustrate an accepted method of determining the engine starting time from known data. Further consideration is then given to the relationship between starter torque output and engine pad strength and a generalized formula is presented for calculating the theoretical transient torque peaks for a simplified starter-engine system. Sample calculations for actual tests are included, and the results of these calculations are compared with measured values.

CURRENT
AIR1467B
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) presents information on gas energy limited propulsion engine starting systems employed in commercial and military applications and remote industrial sites. The types of systems discussed utilize solid propellant cartridge gas, monopropellant hydrazine gas, bipropellant gas, compressed stored gas, and cryogenic stored nitrogen. Presented information conveys design features, performance capabilities and system limitations with methods of computing results.
