GTE Development Toolkits
From Simulation to Physical Tests
GTE Modeling
GTE (Gas Turbine Engine) Simulation library allows creating a GTE model to perform virtual tests when solving problems of gas turbine engine design and tuning, developing its control and diagnostic systems.
GTE simulation at the design stage and digital tuning creates space for designing a large number of models on the same platform.
All available geometric and functional data about the engine are stored in a single dataset, which is available to all specialists working on the design of a particular model in various technical departments.
Simulation model of a gas turbine engine is created on the basis of existing mathematical models describing thermogasdynamic processes inside main engine units. At the same time, the conditions of joint work of all nodes in the engine, including the equations of continuity, power balance and pressure balance, are observed.

GTE Library features:
  • Possibility to design different types of engines (turbojet, double bypass engine, turboshaft) and schemes (single- and multi-cascade).
  • Calculation of steady state and transient processes;
  • Implementation of the model of calculating the thermodynamic properties of the
  • working fluid depending on its composition and temperature.
  • Consideration of compressor and turbine characteristics in the form of dependences of efficiency indicators on operating mode parameters.
HIL Simulation
This is a complete solution for testing models of dynamic and aerodynamic properties of automotive and aviation components and control systems on a virtual polygon in real time.
The designers can load mathematical models of physical objects, parametrically adjust the model. Then the model is tested on the virtual polygon RT Dynamic considering design loads and impacts that are close to operational ones.
The HIL simulator provides real-time testing and takes into account the control systems, sensors and actuators of the system. 

The data obtained from the test site can be used to:
  • defining the boundary conditions.
  • adjustment of the control system algorithms;
  • formation of the test program and tasks for the test benches.
Virtual Environment
In the virtual environment the simulation of engine operation in all modes as a part of the system is performed, as well as the workout as a part of the virtual test rig loaded into the simulator. It is possible to connect to the ECU or its simulator. Based on the simulation results, the test program is adjusted and the design and control system of the test rig is approved.
Physical Test Bench
Rigs are designed based on simulation results and provide all kinds of tests.
