By studying the way air flows around the plane the engineers can define the shapes of the plane. Our work involves with case study of turboprop engine. and without undesirably increasing fuel consumption or disturbing the work cycle of the engine. Mainly aerodynamics and propulsion. There are four basic areas that aeronautical engineers must understand in order to be able to design planes. quite. Aeronautics is the one of the science of flight which involves method of designing an airplane or other flying machine. A turboprop engine includes an engine nacelle and at least one bleed air line on the low-pressure compressor and at least one ejector formed by a cooling air duct and a nozzle to create a cooling air flow within the engine nacelle during critical ground idle operation (controlled or uncontrolled).ABSTRACT The concept of Jet propulsion Engine has started in 150-BC by Hero through his Aeolipile based on Newton’s laws. Aerodynamics is the study of how air flows around the airplane. Propulsion is the study of how to design an engine that will provide the thrust that is needed for a plane to take off and fly through the air. After various inventions and developments numerous types of jet engines have been introduced in aviation for commercial. and with the at least one nozzle being arranged in the cooling air duct . Further developments are being made to travel faster. The ejector is arranged within the engine nacelle in the forward part of the turboprop engine . with the cooling air duct appertaining to the ejector connecting at least one air intake disposed on the periphery of the engine nacelle with the interior of the engine nacelle .

When the V2500 entered service this unique blade had accumulated five years of in-service experience of Rolls-Royce RB211 series engines. hollow structure. To date. . The design improves cooling effectiveness.INTRODUCTION Most of the IAE V2500 engine's advanced features are the result of its heritage. The V2500 traces its pedigree through partner company engines such as the Rolls-Royce RB211 and the Pratt and Whitney PW4000. eliminates stresses and the segment can be replaced individually lowering maintenance cost. Pratt and Whitney's "float wall" combustor is another example of V2500 technology which fits this category. In addition. One of the most noticeable features of the V2500 are its unique fan blades. At high temperatures a diffusion bond is formed between these three piece of materials such that the finished blade is effectively a single piece. The V2500 uses wide chord. shroudless. This lightweight blade is then extremely strong with a leading edge that is robust and can resist damage due to foreign object impact. These segments "float" on the cooling air between the segments and the outer shell. a good example of the advanced. the wide chord nature of the blade centrifuges runway debris and dust into the bypass duct reducing engine removals due to Foreign Object Damage (FOD) by a factor of four when measured against conventional narrow blades. hollow wide-chord fan blades have achieved over 50 million hours in-service experience worldwide. These are manufactured by placing a 3D-machined piece of honey-comb material between two sheets of pre-machined titanium. proven technology contributed by the IAE partners. hollow blades designed and developed by Rolls-Royce.

B. two gear pumps.2.4 Fuel Filter A. Description • • The fuel filter element is a low pressure filter which removes all contamination from fuel to go through it.A LP stage and a HP stage provide fuel at the flows and pressures required for the operation of the hydromechanical components and for combustion in the burner. The housing has a provision for the installation of the FMU. 3. The FCOC includes the following components: A filter cap which has a pressure plate to keep the filter element in position once installed. The filter bypass valve keeps a pressure drop across the filter element to a maximum of 17 psi (1. The filter cap of the FCOC also includes a fuel drain plug to drain the fuel for maintenance purposes. The LP pump is designed to provide fuel to the HP gear stage with the aircraft pumps inoperative. Excess flow from the gear stage pump is recirculated through the FMU bypass loop to the low pressure side of the pump. The filter element is installed in the lower housing of a Fuel Cooled Oil Cooler (FCOC). Operation • • The fuel from the FCOC goes through the filter element into the high pressure gear element of an LP/HP fuel pump. If the pressure drop is higher than the maximum limit. A filter bypass valve to let the fuel go around the filter element when it becomes clogged. Fuel from the aircraft tanks flows to the LP stage of the engine fuel pumps. This stage is protected from overpressure by a relief valve. The unit consists of a LP centrifugal boost stage which feeds an HP single stage. through the aircraft fuel pumps.17 bar) differential.

The FDV operates to change the direction of the FMU spill flow to: • • • The Fuel Cooled Oil Cooler (FCOC) or.5 Fuel Nozzle A. Heat shields installed internally and externally also prevent formation of coke. They are a Fuel Diverter Valve (FDV) and a Fuel Return Valve (FRV). and send the mixture into the combustion chamber in a controlled pattern. The fuel nozzles carry the fuel through a single orifice. The FD and RV has two valves in one body.2. The fuel nozzle forms the atomized mixture of fuel and air into the correct pattern for satisfactory combustion. The fuel is vaporized by highvelocity air as it enters the combustion chamber. and each nozzle is held in position by three bolts. General The Fuel Diverter and Return Valve (FD and RV) is a primary unit in the Heat Management System (HMS) of the engine.6 Fuel Diverter And Return Valve A. The fuel nozzles mix the fuel with air. 3. 3. The design of the fuel nozzle results in fast vaporization of the fuel through the full range of operation. B.

Description/Operation There are 20 fuel nozzles equally spaced around the diffuser case assembly. the IDG FCOC. .valve will start to open and let the fuel go around the filter element. The highvelocity flow of fuel prevents formation of coke on areas where fuel touches metal.2.

This main valve is a half-area piston-type valve which moves the valve to change the metering port area. C. Operation (1) General The FDRV configuration allows four modes of operation according to the electrical signals generated from the EEC (based on fuel and oil temperature measurements transmitted by means of thermocouples). B. (2) Fuel return valve • • The EEC operates the dual-wound torque motor to control the servo pressure. The FDRV gives a feedback signal to the EEC to transmit the position of valves in the unit. The pressure balance between two sides of the main valve (Valves C and D) gives the direction and the speed of the valve movement. Thus.The FRV operates to control fuel flow which goes back to the aircraft fuel tank acting as a fuel cooler. The fuel flow changes with the position of the valves. The main valve has two valve functions that are referred to as valve C and valve D The EEC gives the electrical signal to the FDRV to change the position of the valves. Description The fuel diverter and return valve is installed on the FCOC. The FRV has a main valve and a pushing piston in a sleeve. the fuel flow can be controlled through the FDRV and the EEC. The FDV is a two-position selector valve which has two pistons in a sleeve. Then the valve changes the direction of the fuel flow and controls the metering port area. (3) Fuel diverter valve • The EEC energizes the solenoid valve to let the servo fuel flow. . The two pistons are mechanically connected and make two valve areas which are referred to as valve A and valve B. This servo fuel goes into one side of the piston face in the valve B. This servo fuel pushes the main valve.

The servo pressure pushes two pistons (which are the valves A and B) in the same direction. Then these valves change the direction of the fuel flow, and one of these pistons compresses the spring.

When the solenoid is de-energized, this spring pushes back two pistons.

(There is an orifice to release the servo fuel to the FMU spill port). And the other one of two pistons pushes the switch assemblies. The switch assemblies transmit the EEC the valve position when the solenoid is de-energized. (4) Constant Pressure Valve (CPV) The CPV makes the servo pressure constant between the HP port and LP port of the FDRV. This servo flow moves each valve in the FDRV. (5) Failure mode • When the servo pressure becomes zero: • • The pushing piston comes up to hold the main valve at a mode 5 position. The spring extends to hold the FDV pistons at a mode 5 position. Other than in (a), the FDRV keeps the mode 5 position in these conditions: The failure of the electrical signal. During the engine stops. If the IDG FCOC port is clogged in this valve position, relief valve releases the FMU spill flow. This relief valve is in the valve A and it can release the unwanted pressure to the FCOC port.

1.5.4 Fuel Distribution Valve
A. General The FDV subdivides scheduled engine fuel flow from the FMU equally to ten fuel manifolds, each of which in turn feeds two nozzles. B. Description

The fuel distribution valve is installed at the 4:00 o_clock location, at the front flange of the diffuser case. The fuel distribution valve receives fuel through a fuel line from the FMU. The fuel goes through a 200 micron strainer, and then into ten internal discharge ports. The ten discharge ports are connected to the ten fuel manifolds. Eight of the ten internal discharge ports in the valve are connected after an engine shutdown. This lets fuel drain from eight of the fuel

1.6 CONTROLLING – DESCRIPTION – AND OPERATION
1.6.1 General
The Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) system provides full range control of the engine to achieve steady state and transient performance when operated in combination with aircraft subsystems. The FADEC system consists of • • • • • • • • • • • a dual-channel FADEC unit; Fuel Metering Unit (FMU); dedicated Permanent Magnetic Alternator (PMA); actuation systems for stator vanes, engine bleeds, active clearance control, 10th stage cooling air, engine and Integrated Drive Generator (IDG) heat management control; sensors; electrical harness; and start system components.

The FADEC Electronic Engine Control (EEC) is a vibration-isolated, aircooled unit mounted on the engine fan case. Its vibration isolation and cooling systems are specifically designed to provide a protected and controlled internal environment that is completely compatible with the electronic components.

The VSV position is controlled by the EEC as a function of N2/square root of theta T2.6. The EEC uses the VSV feedback signal from the Linear Variable Differential Transducer (LVDT) to adjust the actual VSV position. (3) Booster Stage Bleed Valve (BSBV) Control The BSBV position is controlled by the EEC. The EEC uses the BSBV feedback signal from the LVDT to adjust the actual BSBV position. (4) HPT/LPT Active Clearance Control (HPT/LPT ACC) The HPT/LPT ACC valve modulates fan air flow to the HP and LP turbine cases. The EEC controls the valve position as a function of the thrust level. The LVDTs transmit the valve position to the EEC. (5) HP Turbine (10th Stage) Cooling Air Control The HP turbine cooling air valve supplies supplemental air (from HP compressor 10th stage) to cool various parts of the HP and LP turbines. The valve operates as a function of high rotor speed and altitude and incorporates a 2-position switch to provide a feedback signal to the EEC (channels A and B) (6) Oil/Fuel Temperature Control Heating and cooling of fuel, engine oil and IDG oil is accomplished by the Fuel Cooled Oil Cooler (FCOC), the Air Cooled Oil Cooler (ACOC) and the IDG cooler under the management of the EEC. Devices used by the EEC include the fuel diverter valve, the ACOC modulating air valve and the return to tank valve. Fuel, engine oil and IDG oil temperatures are transmitted to the EEC by thermocouples. The fuel temperature is measured at the exit of the filter. The engine oil temperature is measured upstream of the ACOC. The IDG oil temperature is measured at IDG oil cooler exit. C. Engine Limits Protection The FADEC prevents inadvertent over boosting of the expected rating(EPR limit and EPR target) during power setting. It also prevents exceedance of rotor speeds (N1 and N2) and burner pressure limits. In addition, the FADEC unit monitors EGT and sends an appropriate

indication to the cockpit display in case of exceedance of the limit. The FADEC unit also provides surge recovery. D. Power Management The FADEC unit contains all the engine thrust setting curves to provide automatic engine thrust ratings control in Engine Pressure Ratio, (EPR) (in normal mode) and N1 (in reversionary mode).The FADEC unit computes power management LIMIT and COMMAND parameters in EPR mode, except during reverse operation (N1 mode). These parameters are available for the following engine thrust modes: • • • • • • Maximum Take-Off and Go-Around Flexible Take-Off Maximum Continuous Maximum Climb Idle (no limit parameter) Reverse (N1 mode operation)
