Periodic Reporting for period 1 - ACONIT (Actuators for Surge Control in Gas Turbine)
Reporting period: 2020-03-01 to 2021-02-28
(Bundeswehr University Munich and Arts & Métiers) and a Research Center (ONERA). It groups skills ranging from internal flow analysis in turbomachineries, to flow control or actuators design, manufacturing and characterisations.
The consortium of the project is composed of : Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers (ENSAM), Office National d'Etudes et de Recherches Aérospatiales (ONERA), Universität der Bundeswehr München (UniBw), Cedrat Tehnologies (CTEC).
The project is part of the overall CleanSky programme, which aims to reduce the impact of aviation by making it more sustainable. The ACONIT project seeks to improve the efficiency of aircraft engines to make them less polluting.
- parametric study performed on a single stage axial compressor operated to find the optimum parameter for the flow control
- numerical activities carried out by ONERA focus on two topics: (i) the prediction of rotating stall and (ii) the active flow control
- first specifications of the actuators for the flow control on a real engine testbench.
ACONIT also plans to bring some progress in the inclusion of Active Fluidic Actuator in Computational Fluid Dynamics.
Aconit plans finally to provide actuators whose The efficiency of which will have been proven on a real engine test bench and which can comply with aeronautical specifications
