The design of the LM2500 gas turbine engine simuolator/trainer
The Ll\12500 Gas Turbine engine Simulator/Trainer is composed of a User Interface environment as well as an LNl2500 engine rnodel. The user interface software runs on an ~ Intel 386 microprocessor board \vith a UNIX operating system \Vhich runs at a 33MHz cycle. The engine model runs on an Intel 386 1nicroprocessor board \vhich runs at a 20 ~IHz cycle. The two software environments interface via dual port RAM. The User Interface environment is menu-driven and includes the following options: l. Real-time Data Monitoring 2. Data Processing .., .., . Signal Injection 4. Data Capture 5. Fault Insertion 6. Parameter Modification 7. Historical Data Plots The User Interface environment may be modified to interface with other simulation models. The engine model sunulates the start/stop sequencing, dynamic operation (above idle and running), and failure modes associated \Vith the G .E. LM2500 marine gas turbine engine. The accuracy of the engine model is verified by comparing the results of the simulation to the data supplied by the Land Based Enginerrring Site (LBES) in Philadelphia. The user interface software is verified by visually checking that the results of the menu selections are as expected. The options available in the user interface software are utilized in the verification of the engine model. Once the model is verified, the Universal Engine Controller (UEC) software is incorporated into the system in order to exercise the LM2500 Simulator/frainer as a dynamic tester.
