simple model of a g- turbine
display and control panel with illustrative process schematic
The trainer CLFM-51 investigates the be-haviour of a system in a two-shaft arrangement (vehicle drive, ship’s propulsion or generator drive) At the core of the trainer are a so-called  generator and a free-running power turbine. The g generator consists of a radial compressor, a combustion chamber and a radial turbine. The compressor and turbine are mounted on a shaft.Depending on the arrangement, the energy of the exhaust g- stream is either converted into mechanical energy in the free-running power turbine (single-shaft arrangement) or accelerated and trans-formed into thrust via a nozzle (two-shaft arrangement). It is possible to convert from a single-shaft to a two-shaft arrangement in just a few actions.The g- turbine works as an open cyclic process, with the ambient air being drawn out and fed back in. Intake and exhaust silencers reduce the noise in operation of the power turbine. The use of propane as the combustion ensures clean, odourless operation. A start-up fan is used to start the g- turbine.Relevant measuring values are recorded by sensors and indicated on the display and control panel. At the same time, the measured values can also be transmit-ted directly to a PC via USB. The data acquisition software is included.

Wind tunnel has been developed to perform various experiments of aerodynamics and fluid flow. This is a open circuit Wind Tunnel provides a region of controlled air flow into which models can be fitted at downstream of working section. The Tunnel consists of bell mouth shaped entry to guide the air smoothly into settling chamber and stabilizes the air flow this follows working section for test section where various models can be tested. Test section with acrylic sheet, will be provided for visual observation. Working section is followed by diffuser section which reduces the dynamic pressure at the exit.
