A Design Study of Single-Rotor Turbomachinery Cycles by Manoharan Thiagarajan

(ABSTRACT)

Gas turbine engines provide thrust for aircraft engines and supply shaft power for various applications. They consist of three main components. That is, a compressor followed by a combustion chamber (burner) and a turbine. Both turbine and compressor components are either axial or centrifugal (radial) in design. The combustion chamber is stationary on the engine casing. The type of engine that is of interest here is the gas turbine auxiliary power unit (APU). A typical APU has a centrifugal compressor, burner and an axial turbine. APUs generate mechanical shaft power to drive equipments such as small generators and hydraulic pumps. In airplanes, they provide cabin pressurization and ventilation. They can also supply electrical power to certain airplane systems such as navigation. In comparison to thrust engines, APUs are usually much smaller in design. The purpose of this research was to investigate the possibility of combining the three components of an APU into a single centrifugal rotor. To do this, a set of equations were chosen that would describe the new turbomachinery cycle. They either were provided or derived using quasi-one-dimensional compressible flow equations. A MathCAD program developed for the analysis obtained best design points for various cases with the help of an optimizer called Model Center. These results were then compared to current machine specifications (gas turbine engine, gasoline and diesel generators). The result of interest was maximum specific power takeoff. The results showed high specific powers in the event there was no restriction to the material and did not exhaust at atmospheric pressure. This caused the rotor to become very large and have a disk thickness that was unrealistic. With the restrictions fully in place, they severely limited the performance of the rotor. Sample rotor shapes showed all of them to have unusual designs. They had a combination of unreasonable blade height variations and very large disk thicknesses. Indications from this study showed that the single radial rotor turbomachinery design might not be a good idea. Recommendations for continuation of research include secondary flow consideration, blade height constraints and extending the flow geometry to include the axial direction.

Introduction

About small gas turbine engines From the beginning, gas turbine engine manufactures considered large and small engines as two

separate categories with each having different applications. Both had their own unique set of problems and challenges. With the introduction of large gas turbine engines in the 1940s, military aircrafts followed by civilian ones, began using them in place of piston engines. Since then, the power and size of these engines grew significantly compared to piston engines.

The usage of piston engines continued for low power applications. For this reason, the evolution of small gas turbine engines occurred slowly. Over time, this engine was the power plant of choice for a variety of applications such as: a) Remotely Piloted Vehicles (RPV) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) b) Decoy, tactical and strategic missiles c) Military trainer aircraft d) Special purpose aircraft such as Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) aircraft e) Helicopters They provided greater operational capabilities in terms of speed, payload, altitude and reliability than piston engines. Small gas turbine engines were quite different mechanically from their larger engine counterparts. There were factors such as manufacturing limitations and mechanical design problems. This prevented direct scaling of large engine design and performance. For example, internal engine pressures were about the same for small and large engines [1]. Therefore, it was necessary that the casing of small engines be approximately as thick as large engine casings. As a result, small engines paid an inherent structural weight penalty. Another example was the difficulty that came about during the development of smaller and lighter fuel controls that had the same amount of reliability like larger engines [1]. Small engine fuel controls had critical accuracy problems because of the lower rates of fuel flow. Gradually, these scaling issues declined due to aggressive efforts in technology development. The advances produced by these efforts allowed the small engine to overcome its problems related to size and attain outstanding performance. The military turned to the gas turbine engine manufacturers to develop small gas turbine engines. This attracted manufacturers to the potential of military contracts and a profitable market once they were developed. By late 1950s, the military had plenty of success with these engines such that civilian aircraft started using them. Piston engine makers saw a need to get into the small gas turbine engine business to maintain their market position and profitability level. Established large engine producers seized the opportunity to expand their business by applying their technical expertise to the development of small gas turbine engines [1]. These incentives and potentials led to an array of companies that wanted to enter the small gas turbine engine business. Next is a chart that shows the North American companies that developed and built small gas turbine engines from the early 1940s through the present:

Figure 1-3: Years spent in the small gas turbine engine business (from [1]).

After early efforts by Westinghouse, it phased out of the small gas turbine engine market in the I950s. Other US companies also became active in studying, developing, and manufacturing these engines for aircraft propulsion in the 1940s. These companies included Fredric Flader, Boeing, Fairchild, and West Engineering. The military sponsored much of their work, and this led to engines that powered both piloted and unmanned aircraft. Each of these companies eventually phased out of the small gas turbine engine business. One company, Williams International, began developing small gas turbine engines using its own funds with the philosophy that once it had successfully developed an engine, there would be a market for it [1]. Another relevant activity underway during the 1940s was small gas turbine component and nonaircraft research and development. In 1943, Garrett began work on Project A [1]. This project consisted of a two-stage compressor for aircraft cabin pressurization, which later led to turbine environmental control systems, jet engine starters, and auxiliary power units (APU). This made Garrett the first company to begin developing APUs.

Auxiliary power unit (APU) and purpose of research An APU is essentially a small gas turbine engine. It is similar in construction and purpose to a

turboshaft engine, seen in Figure 1-4. A turboshaft engine differs from a turboprop engine primarily in the function of the engine shaft. Instead of driving a propeller, the turboshaft engine connects to a transmission system or gearbox to drive a mechanical load. Therefore, shaft power is the desired output.

Figure 1-4: Turboshaft engine (from [2]).

Like the turboshaft engine, an APU consists of three primary components. They are the compressor, a combustion chamber (burner) and a turbine section. Figure 1-5 shows an example of an APU. In commercial and military aircraft, shaft power from APUs generate electrical power that are used for equipments such as lights, onboard computers, televisions, refrigerators, microwave ovens, and coffee pots. In addition, compressed air supplied by the APU goes for aircraft air-conditioning, heating, and ventilation. Another use of the shaft power is to run pumps.

Figure 1-5: Auxiliary power unit (from [3]).

Figure 1-6 shows a typical location of an APU on modern jetliners. The opening at the aircraft rear indicates the APU exhaust vent.

Figure 1-6: APU with exhaust vent at the rear of the aircraft (from [4]).

The purpose of this research is to investigate the possibility of combining the three main components of an APU into a single centrifugal impeller, similar to the compressor design seen in Figure 1-7. The idea of having a power producing turbomachine with only one rotating component suggests that the engine could be lighter, cheaper, and smaller. This in turn could allow it to produce high specific power takeoffs (power takeoff per unit mass flow rate of air). Power takeoff is the amount of mechanical power extracted from the shaft to run equipment such as a generator or hydraulic pump. A numerical simulation of the rotor is to take place in this investigation. Chapter 3 in this thesis shows the derivation of the equations for the analysis. The analysis could apply equally to APUs, turboshaft engines, and so on.

History of the APU

2.1.1 Project A In the spring of 1943, Garrett (today known as AlliedSignal) started to design and develop a twostage compressor for a cabin air compressor. The company called this classified program Project A. Each stage was a centrifugal compressor rotor. The following are the specifications of each rotor: a) Mass flow rate of 45 lb/min at a pressure ratio of 1.75 b) 7.25 inch diameter c) 8 vanes (blades) d) 30 degree backward curvature (measured from the tangent of the outer diameter) e) Shrouded cast aluminum impellers f) Adiabatic efficiency of 78% at the design point Although the unit was just a laboratory development tool, Project A demonstrated early on that high efficiencies over broad operating ranges were characteristics of the backward curved compressor rotor design. This knowledge and experience became an important consideration for aircraft cabin air conditioning equipment. It was also the foundation for Garrettâ€™s first small gas turbine design called the Black Box [1].

2.1.2 The Black Box Boeing wanted a lightweight, compact, self-powered unit that could furnish AC and DC current to its Model 377 Stratocruiser aircraftâ€™s electrical systems. In addition, it must provide airflow for cabin pressurization and air conditioning. It should also supply hot air for the wing anti-icing system. Boeing needed a complete unit in 18 months. Garrett accepted the job and decided to make a small gas turbine engine. Preliminary work started in the spring of 1945. As the design progressed, the unit was nicknamed the Black Box due in part to the secrecy of the project and the fact it had so many gadgets made it look like a magical black box. The engine consisted of a three stage, backward curved centrifugal compressor, a burner, and a single stage axial turbine. A geared power takeoff shaft was to run a blower and a generator/alternator. Compressor bleed air routed through a cooling turbine would generate 40 hp back into the shaft. In addition, the wing anti-icing system would receive a portion of the exhaust gas. Also in this Black Box were primary and secondary

6

heat exchangers, automatic controls, regulators, and air ducts [11]. Figure 2-1 shows the Black Box as it was being assembled.

Figure 2-1: Garrett Black Box (from [1]).

Component testing began by mid 1946 and showed excellent overall compressor efficiency in the neighborhood of 81 to 82%. The high compressor efficiency was not surprising as the technology flowed directly from Project A. The Black Box pressure ratio was three as opposed to 1.75 in Project A. A threestage compressor achieved this ratio. The burner also performed well in tests. This was an important accomplishment for Garrett, as the company had never before built a burner. The turbine wheel component testing did not occur due to the unavailability of a suitable test rig with the capacity to absorb its power. Therefore, turbine testing could only occur until the machine was ready to run. An external power source drove the Black Box after assembly late in the fall of 1946. However, it could not generate sufficient power to run by itself. After a month of trying to get the Black Box to self-run, engineers found the untested turbine component to be the problem. With an efficiency of less than 70%, the turbine engine was on the borderline of being self-supporting. By that time, there was

7

insufficient time left to redesign the turbine and meet the contract deadline. Subsequently, Garrett had to cancel the Black Box program at the end of December 1946. The complexity of the unit, low turbine efficiency, and tight development schedule killed the Black Box project [1]. Despite the cost of the program to Garrett and the problems that it caused with Boeing, there were some important lessons learned, particularly what not to do. Further work on axial turbines discontinued at Garrett in favor of the radial inflow turbine. The highly successful backward curved centrifugal compressor continued in future Garrett projects. The knowledge gained from building a successful combustor was part of the technology base gained from the program. These efforts produced here carried on in future Garrett engines especially in the GTC43/44, the companyâ€™s first successful gas turbine engine [1].

2.1.3 The GTC43/44 While the Black Box program was still running, the Navy was looking for a 35 hp gas turbine starter. That was the power needed to start the 5525 hp Allison XT40 turboprop engines in the Navy sponsored Convair XPSY-1 flying boat. Agreeing to develop such a unit, Garrett received a contract in early 1947 by the Navy for the starter. The engine that Garrett ultimately designed was the GTC43/44. The project started after the termination of the Black Box program. The design work took place between March and April 1947. The GTC43/44 contained a two-stage backward curved centrifugal compressor (first stage seen in Figure 2-2) with an overall pressure ratio of three. From the compressor, two outlets connected with elbows led to two independent tubular steel combustion chambers. This engine would have a single stage radial inflow turbine. The unit was to deliver 43 lb of air at 44 lb per square inch absolute pressure, hence its name GTC43/44 [1].

Figure 2-2: GTC43/44 first stage backward curved centrifugal compressor (from [1]).

On July 1, 1947, turbine wheel tests showed 82 to 84% efficiency. Garrett conducted the first self-sustaining test run of the GTC43/44 on August 23, 1947. On June 2, 1948, the engine passed its 200hour Navy endurance test and it was the first small gas turbine engine to pass such a test. Garrett began

8

production of the starter in 1948. Its first flight service was on April 18, 1950 in the Convair XPSY-1 flying boat. Two GTC43/44s provided compressed air for starting the main engines and for driving alternators that powered the XPSY electrical systems. In an effort to further its applications, the North American A2J used a mobile ground power version. The first commercial use of the GTC43/44 was in a ground vehicle for starting the Lockheed Electra. However, the GTC43/44 was not without problems [1]. Automatic fuel controls, designed to provide fully automatic starting and overload protection, proved unreliable in service. The twin combustor design also proved to be a problem. The combustor-turbine coupling became extremely hot and it was difficult to find a suitable fireproof enclosure. The radial inflow turbine also had difficulties such as cracks on the turbine rims. Considerable engineering effort went into solving such field service, packaging, and design problems. The GTC43/44 was however a commercial success and more than 500 units were manufactured between 1949 and early 1950s for a variety of applications. It was Garrett's first successful gas turbine engine. It was also the start of a major new product line, the gas turbine auxiliary power unit (APU), which Garrett dominated the world markets through the 1990s. The GTC43/44 also provided a technology base for future Garrett prime propulsion engines.

2.2

Ideal Brayton Cycle and ideal jet propulsion cycle George Brayton first proposed the Brayton cycle for use in the piston engine that he developed

around 1870 [6]. Today gas turbine engines use it when both the compression and expansion processes take place in rotating machinery. Ambient air, drawn into a compressor, rises in both temperature and pressure [7]. Then burning of fuel occurs when the air proceeds into a combustion chamber (burner). The resulting high-temperature gas then expands in a turbine, and exits the engine. In an APU, this expansion process produces shaft power. When the exhaust gas simply leaves the engine, this process is called an open cycle. Gas turbine engines usually operate on an open cycle. Figure 2-3 shows a closed cycle called the Brayton cycle. This is when a constant-pressure heat rejection process replaces the exhaust air from the open cycle.

9

Figure 2-3: Closed gas turbine engine cycle (from

Figure 2-4: Closed cycle T-s diagram (from [6]).

[6]).

Figure 2-4 shows the temperature-entropy (T-s) diagram for a closed cycle. For an ideal Brayton cycle, the following processes happen: a) Isentropic compression (2-3) b) Constant pressure heat addition or combustion (3-4) c) Isentropic expansion (4-5) d) Constant pressure heat rejection (5-1) Figure 2-4 shows the maximum temperature occurring at the end of the combustion process. Material constraints contribute to this temperature limitation. Aircraft gas turbine engines operate on an open cycle called a jet propulsion cycle. The ideal jet propulsion cycle differs from the ideal Brayton cycle simply that the gases do not expand to the ambient pressure in the turbine [6]. Instead, it expands in the turbine to produce just sufficient power to drive the compressor and, if any, auxiliary equipment. The equipment could be a small generator or hydraulic pump. Figure 2-5 shows a turbojet engine and its ideal T-s diagram. Ambient air pressure rises slightly as it decelerates in the diffuser. Air, compressed in the compressor, mixes and burns with jet fuel in the combustion chamber at constant pressure. This high pressure-temperature gas then partially expands in the turbine to produce enough power to run the compressor. For a turbojet, the gas exiting the turbine expands to ambient pressure in the nozzle to produce thrust. The ideal T-s diagram for an APU will be similar to the one below.

10

2.3

How current APUs work

Figure 2-6: APU centrifugal compressor rotor with inducer vanes (from [3]).

Air drawn into the engine first goes through a centrifugal compressor rotor. Curved vanes at the compressor intake area, called inducers, guide the air into the compressor. Rotors without inducers are usually very noisy due to flow separation [5]. As the air passes through the compressor, it accelerates outward at high speed and slows down in a ring of stationary vanes called the diffuser. This causes the air pressure to rise. Immediately after the compressor section, an air bleed system is usually present. This releases a portion of the airflow in the engine. Since this bleed air is very energetic, it can pressurize aircraft cabins or drive small cold turbines to develop shaft horsepower. Valves or venturis control this air bleed to within pre-determined limits [3].

11

Figure 2-7: Combustion chambers (from [3]).

The diffuser sends this air to the combustion chamber. The chamber causes it to heat and expand [3]. Combustion chambers vary in design but they all work in the same way. A metal liner inside the engine holds a flame in place by injecting air through a number of holes and orifices. One or more nozzles then spray fuel into the chamber where it burns continuously once ignited. With about a quarter of the air burned through the APU, the rest mixes with the combustion exhaust to lower its temperature so that it can pass through the turbine. Two basic types of combustion chambers exist. They are the can type or the annular type [3]. The can type is mounted on one side of the engine. Heat resistant ducting guides the combustion gases from the combustion chamber on to the turbine nozzle. In some cases, there are two combustion chambers on either side of the APU. It has the advantage of being easy to remove from the APU. An annular combustion chamber placed around the axis of the engine takes the form of a cylinder. It usually guides the exhaust gases directly onto the turbine nozzle. This chamber design allows the APU to maintain a small size. A mechanical or electronic governing system controls the amount of fuel supplied to the combustion chamber. The system must ensure that the engine starts and accelerates smoothly without getting too hot [3]. It must also keep the engine running at constant speed regardless of load. Fuel pumps normally consist of gear pumps or small piston pumps operated by a rotating plate arrangement. The fuel pump usually receives power from a separate electric motor.

12

Figure 2-8: Fuel igniter (from [3]).

The ignition of APUs is similar to that of larger engines. High-energy ignition is the most common ignition. A capacitor, charged to a high voltage (about 3,000V), is discharged into a special sparkplug [3]. The charge comes from a DC inverter, which steps up a battery supply. The sparkplug extrudes into the combustion chamber and is close to the fuel nozzle. A cold engine is quite difficult to light. The energy from the discharged spark is as much as several joules. It occurs across the surface of the plug at a rate of one to two sparks per second. Some models of engines are equipped with automotive type ignition. Here a trembler induction coil provides a very high voltage (about 20,000 to 30,000V) but with a low energy spark [3].

Figure 2-9: APU turbines (from [3]).

The hot gases generated by the combustion process drive one or more turbine wheels that create shaft power. A single shaft connects the turbine, compressor and an external load (via a gearbox)

13

together. A second mechanically independent turbine can also drive the load. Thus, this engine is equipped with two shafts. In most APUs, the compressor uses about two thirds of the mechanical power developed [3]. There are two types of turbines found in APUs. They are the inflow radial (IFR) and axial turbine. The design of the IFR turbine is similar to a centrifugal compressor rotor but is made of heat resistant metal. A nozzle ring directs hot gases from the combustion chamber inwards and tangentially on to the radial blades of the turbine. The gases flow inward and then along the axis of the wheel and out through an exhaust duct. For axial turbines, a disc is fitted with aerofoil cross-sectional blades around its circumference. A ring of similar static blades that form a nozzle directs hot gases onto it. The turbine disc and nozzle are also made of heat resistant metal. Axial turbines can be put together to form multiple stages. Small engines generally employ a maximum of two turbine stages [3]. Compressor bleed air keep the turbine and nozzle assembly cool by allowing it to flow around the components. Twin-shaft APUs are less common than the single-shaft ones. Both normally drive a load via a reduction gearbox. The same gearbox may also drive engine accessories such as fuel and oil pumps. A typical load is an electrical generator or a mechanical pump. A single-shaft engine generally cannot accept any kind of load until it has started and accelerated to operating speed. Most aircraft APUs are of single-shaft designs. Twin-shaft APUs are especially useful for starting larger engines and are known as gas turbine starters (GTS). Most of the twin-shaft APUs work as a GTS unit [3]. Lubrication of APU bearings occur in a similar way to larger propulsion engines. That is, by spraying small oil jets onto them. A pressure pump with a relief valve pressurizes the system feeding the jets. Oil normally returns to a reservoir under gravity or collected by a second larger capacity pump. The larger capacity pump is required as the oil picks up a lot of air and can become foamy. The oil circulating around an APU usually becomes hot such that it passes through some sort of cooling device like a fancooled radiator. Oil pumps are generally gear types. However, compressor air can also pressurize the lubricating oil. On some models, a separate electric motor circulates the oil around the engine. Oil seals keep the oil around the bearing assemblies so that it would not enter the combustion process. Carbon seals are common in APUs. A ring or disc of carbon is spring loaded against a highly polished rotating surface through which oil cannot escape. APU lubricating oils are synthetic and thinner than the ones used in piston engines. APUs are often started by electric motors. A heavy-duty motor can accelerate the APU to light up speed and assist the engine until it becomes self-sustaining. Most APUs self sustain at about 25 to 30% of their rated speed [3]. Self-sustaining speed is the point where the compressor begins to develop significant gauge pressure. When this happens, the mechanical load on the starter motor reduces and its power automatically cuts off.

Chapter 3 3.1

Formulas used for the APU

General information As mentioned before, the new APU combines a compressor, burner and turbine into a single

centrifugal impeller (rotor). The rotor consists of a number of blades (usually curved), also called vanes, arranged in a regular pattern around a rotating shaft, as seen in Figure 1-7. First, it is essential to become familiar with the variables and their accompanying subscripts for this research in the Nomenclature section. The subscripts describe the following [8]: a) Rotor components b) Location within the APU (station number) c) Coordinate system for the velocities This rotor will use the cylindrical coordinate system for convenience. There are no axial velocity components (z-direction) within the rotor since it is radial in design. Figure 3-1 shows the absolute velocity in this coordinate system.

Figure 3-1: Cylindrical coordinate system (from [5]).

A velocity triangle graphically relates the velocities C, W and U. Figure 3-2 shows the general shape of the rotor along with the velocity triangle:

15

Figure 3-2: Shape of rotor with velocity triangle (from [5]).

Figure 3-2 indicates a backward leaning configuration. This means the angle β here is positive. The angle of the relative velocity is the same as the blade angle. Equations in this chapter are valid for any configuration of velocity triangles. Figure 3-1 and Figure 3-2 give the following relationships for the velocities: Cθ = U-Wθ Cr = Wr Cz = Wz

(1)

C2 = Cr2+Cθ2+Cz2 W2 = Wr2+Wθ2+Wz2 The following sections show the equations needed to analyze the turbomachinery cycle of this new rotor. Each portion of the rotor has its own set of equations. The entire analysis in this study ignores the effects of gravity and the gas is continuous (motion of individual molecules does not have to be considered). In addition, the viscosity of the flow, magnetic and electrical effects are also negligible.

Burner and turbine After the compressor, the rotor vanes extend to include a burner followed by a turbine. It is

necessary to select the governing equations for both components. The best way is to choose the generalized quasi-one-dimensional compressible flow equations. In general, these equations are to take into account the following effects: a) Flow area change b) Heat exchange c) Work done by or on the flow d) Drag force on the flow e) Mass addition (fuel) into the flow

Figure 3-3: Burner and turbine control volume between two vanes across a small step change (from [9]).

22

First, define a control volume over a differentially short portion of the flow as seen in Figure 3-3. The assumptions here are steady flow and that the added fuel does not alter the gas properties significantly. Then select the governing equations based on the following principles: a) Conservation of angular momentum b) Conservation of energy (first law of thermodynamics) c) Equation of state d) Conservation of mass e) Conservation of linear momentum f) Relative stagnation temperature equation g) Relative stagnation pressure equation h) Absolute stagnation temperature equation i)

3.4.1 Burner equations For the new rotor, the flow in the burner is subsonic. This allows the combustion process to take place since it is difficult to place a flame in the flow to ignite the fuel if the velocities are too fast. Equations 1 through 9 and 11 from Appendix B describe the flow through the burner vanes. The drag coefficient seen in the conservation of linear momentum equation represents the flame holder located only at the beginning of the burner. The equations for this component are: a) Conservation of energy and angular momentum combination:

3.4.2 Burner input parameters and method of solving equations In Equations (38) through (47), the specified variables are A, β, U, To CD, hHV, and ηb. The outline below shows how to deal with these variables: a) Specify the radius ratio r4/r3 and the number of iteration steps, nb. b) Next, consider the radius variation along the burner flow to be r = r3+δr (δr is the difference between r as it varies along the burner and r3). At the inlet, δr (or δr3) is zero when r = r3. The equation for r/r3 is: r

δr

= 1+

r3

(48)

r3

c) At station 4, δr/r3 is δr4/r3 = (r4/r3)-1. It follows that the small step change is d(δr/r3) = (δr4/r3)/nb or: r4

⎛ δr ⎞ d⎜ ⎝ r3 ⎠

(49)

d) It is now possible to vary the quantity δr/r3 starting with zero in steps of d(δr/r3) from index i = 0 to nb as follows: δr r3

⎛ δr ⎞

i⋅ d ⎜

(50)

⎝ r3 ⎠

This also allows the variation of r/r3 from one to r4/r3. e) Vary the flow area as the ratio A/A3 using the second order polynomial below: A A3

⎛ δr ⎞ + Y2⋅ ⎛ δr ⎞ ⎜r ⎝ r3 ⎠ ⎝ 3⎠

(51)

The variables Y1 and Y2 are specified coefficients. f) Obtain the variation of angle β using the following polynomial:

⎛ δr ⎞ + S2⋅ ⎛ δr ⎞ β = β 3 + S1⋅ ⎜ ⎜r ⎝ r3 ⎠ ⎝ 3⎠

2

(52)

The variables S1 and S2 are specified coefficients. The initial value of β is β3. g) Define the change in rotor speed using:

⎛ r⎞ U = U 3⋅ ⎜ ⎝ r3 ⎠

(53)

At the exit, the burner flow variables in Equation (57) will use the subscript four. Knowing that the amount of fuel added is mf = m4-m3 gives the burner fuel-to-air ratio defined as f = mf/m3 or: m4

f

m3

−1

(59)

The ratio m4/m3 = (m4/A3)/(m3/A3). In the event f is an input, then the To distribution would require calculation. Next, using the definition of angular momentum [12] from Appendix B and Cθ = UW*sin(β), the specific power of the burner is: ⎡m ⎤ Wb = − ⎢ 4 ⋅ U 4 ⋅ ( U 4 − W4 ⋅ sin(β 4 )) − U 3 ⋅ ( U 3 − W3 ⋅ sin(β 3 ))⎥ m3 ⎣ m3 ⎦

(60)

Appendix B shows the derivation of Equation (60).

3.4.3 Turbine equations To produce as much power as possible, the flow will have to exit at high relative Mach numbers to help spin the rotor. Like the burner, Equations 1 through 8 along with 10 and 12 in Appendix B describe the flow through the turbine but without the heat addition, mass addition and drag force terms.

Notice that Equations (61) through (67) are differential equations that require a numerical solution.

3.4.4 Turbine input parameters The turbine flow will initially be subsonic. It can then proceed to a supersonic flow region. If the subsonic flow approaches the sonic point and needs to go supersonic, the calculations must terminate and cannot continuously cross the sonic point. The chosen termination point is when Mrel = 0.99 (station number 4.5). In Equations (61) through (70), the specified variables are A, β, and U.

29

3.4.4.1

Subsonic turbine Assuming first that the sonic point does not occur, perform the following steps to obtain the input

parameters: a) Specify the radius ratio r5/r4 and the number of iterations steps, nt. b) Next, consider the radius along the turbine flow to be r = r4+δr (δr is the difference between r as it varies along the burner and r4). At the inlet, δr (or δr4) is zero when r = r4. The variation of r/r4 is: r

1+

r4

δr

(71)

r4

c) At station 5, δr/r4 is δr5/r4 = (r5/r4)-1. It follows that the small step change is d(δr/r4) = (δr5/r4)/nt or: r5

⎛ δr ⎞ d⎜ ⎝ r4 ⎠

r4

−1

(72)

d) It is now possible to vary the quantity δr/r4 starting with zero in steps of d(δr/r4) from index i = 0 to nt as follows:

⎛ δr ⎞

δr

i⋅ d ⎜

(73)

⎝ r4 ⎠

r4

This then allows the variation of r/r4. e) For the flow to accelerate, decrease the area as the ratio A/A4 using the second order polynomial below: A A4

⎛ δr ⎞ + K2⋅ ⎛ δr ⎞ ⎜r ⎝ r4 ⎠ ⎝ 4⎠

2

1 + K1⋅ ⎜

(74)

The variables K1 and K2 are specified coefficients. f) Obtain the variation of angle β using the following polynomial: β

⎛ δr ⎞ + B2⋅ ⎛ δr ⎞ ⎜r ⎝ r4 ⎠ ⎝ 4⎠

2

β 4 + B1⋅ ⎜

(75)

The variables B1 and B2 are specified coefficients. The initial value of β is β4. g) Define the change in rotor speed using: U

r U4⋅ ⎛⎜ ⎞ ⎝ r4 ⎠

(76)

The second-order polynomials in Equations (74) and (75) are chosen for convenience; other variations with r are possible. They are variable using any type of functions.

30

3.4.4.2

Supersonic turbine If the turbine reaches station 4.5, it can only go supersonic if it satisfies the condition P0/Po4.5rel <

0.528. Otherwise, the flow stops at station 4.5 and r5/r4 is shorter than the one specified in 3.4.4.1. Figure 3-4 from the Anderson textbook [11] provides the basis for this condition:

Figure 3-4: Convergent-divergent nozzle with supersonic exit (from [1]).

For the input parameters, repeat the steps in Section 3.4.4.1 by changing the subscripts 4 to 4.5. This means r5/r4 in Step a) becomes r5/r4.5. However, r5/r4.5 needs to be calculated. First, obtain the ratio r4.5/r4, which is the final value of r/r4. Now, the ratio r5/r4.5 is:

⎛ r5 ⎞ ⎛ r4.5 ⎞ ⎜ r ⋅⎜ r r4.5 ⎝ 4⎠ ⎝ 4 ⎠ r5

31

−1

(77)

This ensures that by the end of the turbine calculations, the radius ratio is the specified r5/r4. For the flow to accelerate, the area will have to increase. Replace Equation (74) in Step e) with the supersonic area ratio A/A4.5 polynomial:

⎛ δr ⎞ + KK2⋅ ⎛ δr ⎞ 1 + KK1⋅ ⎜ ⎜r A 4.5 ⎝ r4.5 ⎠ ⎝ 4.5 ⎠ A

2

(78)

The variables KK1 and KK2 are specified coefficients. The decreasing flow area in the subsonic region and increasing flow area in the supersonic region means the turbine resembles a convergent-divergent nozzle. The overall turbine area ratio is then: A5 A4

⎛ A 4.5 ⎞ ⎛ A 5 ⎞ ⎜ A ⎜A ⎝ 4 ⎠ ⎝ 4.5 ⎠

(79)

The ratio A4.5/A4 is the value of Equation (74) at station 4.5.

The output variables above are the important ones. It is still possible to obtain other output properties not mentioned in this chapter by using a combination of variables seen in Table 3-5 and Table 3-6. Plotting the burner and turbine results show how they vary throughout the flow.

Overall APU properties With the flow properties now known at each component, it is necessary to determine the overall

performance of the rotor. This is important when comparing the new APU to other engines currently in service. Here are the important parameters that describe the overall performance: a) Rotor specific power takeoff: PTO W t Wb Wc = + + mc mc mc mc

(86)

b) Power takeoff coefficient:

(90)

In most cases, the specific power takeoff and PSFC are the two parameters used when comparing the rotor with other engines. In order to limit the impeller size, it is important to introduce the concept of centrifugal stress. To make this analysis as simple as possible, the assumptions are: a) The rotor bottom is a relatively flat disk. b) The disk thickness is tapered in such a way that its centrifugal stress is uniform everywhere. First, calculate the ratio r5/r2h:

Results of analysis

A MathCAD program created to carry out the new rotor analysis consisted of an input parameters section and an equations/results section. In the equations/results section, the program performed the analysis according to the following steps: a) Air and diffuser b) Compressor c) Burner d) Turbine e) Overall APU properties The turbine portion evaluates only the subsonic flow if the supersonic region does not occur. Before continuing with the rotor analysis, it was important to validate the burner and turbine equations by comparing them with simple flow problems. The purpose was to provide confidence in the usage of the burner and turbine equations.

4.1

Simple one-dimensional flow A simple flow involves no curvature (Î˛ does not change) and rotation along with constant

specific heats. For convenience, the equations in this section will use relative frame variables (absolute and relative frames are the same for simple flows). Simple cases for the burner are: a) Flow in a constant area duct with drag and heat addition. b) Flow in a constant area duct with only heat addition. For both cases above, mf is extremely small compared to m3. As for the turbine, the chosen simple case is the variable area duct flow.

Consider the heat addition flow thorough the control volume shown in Figure 4-2. The same equations in Section 4.1.1.1 are applicable for the above control volume but with CD = 0. Once again, the input parameters for the burner equations are such that it is a simple case for this section. Table 4-2 summarizes the program results and the ones from Equations (93) and (95):

Equation (96) also works for convergent-divergent ducts. This type of nozzle can generate a supersonic flow. The turbine input parameters in the program are such that both a subsonic and supersonic region exists for a simple case. That means the turbine is a convergent-divergent nozzle just like in Figure 4-3. Equation (96) uses the values of M4rel and M5rel from the turbine calculations to determine A5/A4.

Single rotor APU results

4.2.1 Model Center and input/output constraints In order to implement the MathCAD program for the new rotor, it was preferable to optimize it using Model Center (created by Phoenix Integration Inc.). Unlike other optimizers, Model Center has a specially created plug-in that easily wraps Mathcad programs into it. With the wrapping completed, Model Center needed a range of values for all or just a selected number of input parameters to perform the optimization. For the compressor input parameters, they were obtainable using typical values from the Hill and Petersen textbook. As for the burner and turbine, the 43

range of values was as wide as possible but within reasonable limits. The objective of the optimizer in this study was to maximize the specific power takeoff. Model Center then chose the best values for the input parameters when the optimizing process ended. Table 4-4 summarizes these input parameters: Table 4-4: Model Center input parameters with range limits.

Setting a limit on σ/ρmaterial allowed the selection of an appropriate material from Figure 3-5 at the end of the optimizer run. To obtain the best results, it was preferable to set constraints on some of the output variables. This eventually helped speed up the optimization process. Table 4-6 shows the chosen variables along with their given constraints: Table 4-6: Model Center output constraints.

less than 0.005

The limit placed on A5/A4.5 ensured the relative Mach number did not become too large in the event the flow goes supersonic. In addition, the limit |(P0-P5)/P5| (for backpressure matching consideration) being less than 0.005 means the rotor flow exits close to atmospheric pressure. Limits placed on the compressor, burner and turbine size prevented them from becoming too small or big. With the information in Table 4-4 and Table 4-6, Model Center found the maximum specific power takeoff for the cases mentioned in Section 4.2.2. There were three available optimizing methods in Model Center: a) Method of feasible directions (MFD). b) Sequential linear programming (SLP). c) Sequential quadratic programming (SQP). Of the three, SQP was the newest algorithm. Before starting the optimizer, it required initial values for the variables listed in Table 4-4 along with the constraints mentioned in Table 4-6. MFD was found not to reach the maximum point for the given constraints and limitations. For this reason, it was the quickest among the three. However, the results from this run served as the initial values for the SLP method. According to Model Center, SLP had the most efficient algorithm. To make sure SLP found a true optimum, it was necessary to restart the calculation using initial values from the previous run. Usually, it took SLP as much as two times to find the true optimum point. The downside with using the SLP method was it took between one and a half to two hours to complete a run. The entire optimization procedure

45

needed repeating using different initial values to make sure the true optimum point did indeed occur. SQP was capable of reaching a maximum point close to the one achieved by SLP but required many repeated runs.

4.2.2 Results from Model Center The Model Center analysis consisted of four different cases: a) Without the stress (z2h/z5) and |(P0-P5)/P5| constraints. b) With the stress constraint but without the |(P0-P5)/P5| constraint. c) Without the stress constraint but with the |(P0-P5)/P5| constraints. d) With the stress and |(P0-P5)/P5| constraints. The rest of the limitation in Table 4-4 and Table 4-6 stayed the same.

4.2.2.1

Case 1: Without the stress and |(P0-P5)/P5| constraints. This case was necessary to investigate how large the rotor will get without the limitation of

material (stress) or whether the flow exited at atmospheric pressure. Model Center then provided the following results (complete results in Appendix E): Table 4-7: Overall rotor and other properties (Case 1).

The optimizer stopped when A5/A4.5 reached a value of 4.012, which limited the turbine size. Figure E-16 through Figure E-20 (all created by only varying U3/(γ0*R*To2)1/2) shows that this configuration was the optimum point based on the given constraints and limitations in Section 4.2.1. The optimum occurred when the compressor pressure ratio was just enough to satisfy the P0/Po4.5rel < 0.528 condition and allowed the flow to go past the sonic point into the supersonic region (refer to Figure 4-4). In Figure D-1, Case 1 clearly competed very well with the other gas turbine engines. The high specific power takeoff resulted due to both the burner and turbine producing a large amount of specific power. Figure E-14 showed how this configuration compared to the Brayton cycle.

Figure 4-4: Relative Mach number, stagnation temperature (K) and pressure (Pa) according to location in the rotor (Case 1).

The plots in Figure 4-4 show that the rotor went supersonic which in turn caused the stagnation temperature and pressure to drop considerably in the turbine. There was an unavoidable stagnation pressure drop in the burner that was consistent with the concept of burning at finite relative Mach numbers. This would occur in the burner for all the other cases.

Figure 4-5: Variation of the absolute tangential velocity (m/s), rotor speed (m/s) and flow curvature (deg) (Case 1).

Figure 4-5 indicates that U and β achieved high values that contributed to a large negative drop in the value of Cθ for the turbine. This permitted it to achieve a high specific power value. The drop in Cθ in the burner made it act like a turbine and produced specific power. The burner would act like a turbine in all the subsequent cases. However, Table 4-7 showed a huge value for z2h/z5 making this rotor unrealistic. A r5/r2h value of 65.390339, which resulted in U5 being 765.698776 m/s, made the rotor become as strong as possible to withstand the amount of stress associated with this configuration.

4.2.2.2

Case 2: With the stress constraint but without the |(P0-P5)/P5| constraint The analysis now included material limitation but still without taking into account the

backpressure. Table 4-8 shows some of the results from Model Center with the complete set located in Appendix F:

Comparing the results in Appendix E and Appendix F showed similar patterns in the flow characteristics. This would be the situation for all the subsequent cases. The exception here was there was no supersonic flow region, as seen in Figure F-1. The compressor pressure ratio was not high enough to satisfy the condition P0/Po4.5rel < 0.528 and caused the flow to cutoff at station 4.5. From Case 1, it was known that the compressor pressure ratio had to be around six and higher to go past the sonic point. In this case, the optimizer halted when r3/r2t came close to its minimum value. Figure F-19 through Figure F-23 (all created by only varying M2rel) indicated that Case 2 was indeed an optimum. In fact, all the points in Figure F-19 through Figure F-23 had their flow end at station 4.5. The plots also showed that more specific power takeoff was possible but only when r3/r2t became smaller than one. Like in Case 1, Figure F-14 showed how this case compared to the Brayton cycle (to view the compressor and turbine temperature change in Figure F-14, see Figure F-15 and Figure F-16). In Figure F-13, the size limitation affected the range at which Cθ could drop in the burner and turbine. The value of U5 was definitely a lot smaller than in Case 1. This made the burner and turbine each produce specific power that was not as high as in the previous case. Therefore, the stress limitation clearly prevented the rotor from achieving a high specific power takeoff. When placed into Figure D-1, this case was close to the other gas turbine engines but could not compete very well in terms of specific power takeoff and PSFC. Unlike Case 1, the value of z2h/z5 here was more realistic. This was due to a smaller rotor size and exit rotor speed. Figure F-23 showed the disk thickness would continue to become larger with increasing compressor pressure ratio and specific power takeoff.

4.2.2.3

Case 3: Without the stress constraint but with the |(P0-P5)/P5| constraint It was now necessary to determine the rotor characteristics using the backpressure as a constraint

but without any stress limitations. This gave the following selected results in Table 4-9 (complete results in Appendix G):

There was an obvious improvement in the results compared to Case 2. From Figure G-1, the flow managed to get into the supersonic region. This meant it satisfied the P0/Po4.5rel < 0.528 condition and at the same time had an exit pressure close to atmospheric. To accomplish this, the compressor pressure ratio had to be very large. However, this large compressor had a negative effect on the specific power takeoff. Table 4-9 showed that the burner and turbine together produced a significant amount of specific power. This was due to the large Cθ drop seen in Figure G-12 with high β5 and U5 values. Nevertheless, the compressor power demand took up most of this specific power leaving a specific power takeoff a little more than in Case 2. In Figure D-1, Case 3 and Case 2 were close together but compared not very well to the other gas turbine engines. With no material limitation, the rotor size behaved similar to Case 1 and the disk thickness went as large as possible. The plots in Appendix G showed that the major portion of the rotor was in fact the compressor. Therefore, a z2h/z5 value of 1.292149E+4 made the manufacturing of this rotor impossible.

4.2.2.4

Case 4: With the stress and |(P0-P5)/P5| constraints In this case, Model Center used all the constraints and limitations mentioned in Table 4-4 and

Table 4-6 to give the selected results in Table 4-10: Table 4-10: Overall rotor and other properties (Case 4).

When completely constrained, this case produced the lowest specific power takeoff and highest PSFC among the four cases. Part of this reason was that the flow ended at M5rel equal to 0.476262371. Figure H-13 showed there was not much of a drop in CÎ¸ between the burner inlet and turbine exit to significantly power the compressor and produce specific power takeoff at the same time. Like in Case 3, the compressor absorbed most of the specific power generated. Placing this case into Figure D-1 showed that it was far from the gas turbine engine points in terms of both specific power takeoff and PSFC. Appendix H shows the rest of the results for this case.

4.2.3 Rotor material and size The specific strength for this rotor (including all the other cases) ended at its highest given limit of 30 kPa/kg/m3. This once again indicated that the rotor required the strongest material possible. Using Figure 3-5 (with To4 as the service temperature), a possible material was molybdenum alloy stainless steel. Next, it was important to illustrate how the rotor for each case would look like. Appendix I through Appendix L shows how this took place. All four cases had eight vanes and r2t = 2 inches. Appendix I showed Case 1 had an unusual blade height distribution. It was very small at the compressor outlet but took on a very large value at the rotor exit. In Case 2, the compressor exit blade height started out at 0.934 inches but when it reached the burner outlet, the height was 9.738 inches. Both the first two cases obviously had unusual rotor designs. This also occurred in Cases 3 and 4. The value of b5 equal to 1.159 inches in Case 3 made this rotor seem reasonable. However, both the ratio b5/b3 = 53.131 and z2h/z5 = 1.292149E+4 in Case 3 made this rotor unrealistic. As for Case 4, b4 = 0.743 inches and b5 = 4.312 inches. Each rotor design had geometries that made their manufacturing not practical. A general observation was the compressor always had the largest size compared to the other components.

Conclusion

Summary The idea of this study was to combine the compressor, burner and turbine of a gas turbine engine

into a single radial rotor and simulate it mathematically according to the principles of quasi-onedimensional flow. The simulations consisted of four different cases with each producing a unique set of results. An optimizer maximized the specific power takeoff for each case using a set of design constraints placed on the input parameters and output variables. The results from the first case indicated that with no restrictions on the type of material and exit backpressure matching, the rotor size became as large as possible with high supersonic exit relative Mach numbers. This allowed a large specific power takeoff that was able to compete very well with current gas turbine engines in service. Stress analysis indicated this rotor had an unrealistic disk thickness distribution. With the rotor fully constrained, as in the last case, it was unable to achieve supersonic exit velocities and produced a very low specific power takeoff. This made it compare poorly with current gas turbine engine performance. Constraining the rotor size prevented a large absolute tangential velocity change. This in turn affected the specific powers produced by the burner and turbine components. Each case also had the disadvantage of having large compressors (compared to the other components). However, all the gas turbine engines (including the four cases) compared badly with the gasoline and diesel power generators. These generators usually do not have any weight limitations since they are ground-based. This allows them to have extra components such as regenerators, intercoolers and so on giving them high efficiencies. Each case investigated had a sample rotor drawn to help visualize their shapes. The pictures indicated that all four rotors had an unusual combination of blade heights and disk thicknesses making their construction difficult. Therefore, the results in general suggest that the single radial rotor concept may not be such a good idea, at least for large PTO/m3.

5.2

Recommendations With the study now complete, some recommendations for continuation of this research are:

a) Optimize the PSFC, not just the specific power takeoff. b) Consider secondary flows to analyze the rotor with loss terms such as friction. c) Provide constraints for the blade height variation to make rotor shape more practical. d) Perform a combined burner and turbine analysis. e) Provide more degrees of freedom to the analysis by extending the rotor geometry to allow flow in the axial direction (z-direction). 52
