Effects of Power Extraction on Turbofan Compressor and Turbine Maps
The two diagrams below show the effects of shaft power extraction (shaft power offtake / shaft power off-take for the propulsion of accessories such as fuel-/hydraulic-/oil-pumps, generators etc.) on a high-bypass turbofan engine at a flight altitude of $H = 11km$ and a speed of $Ma = 0.8$, calculated with GasTurb 12:
Effects of Power Extraction on the Operating Line (Blue)
- Why are the operating lines (blue) of both the compressor and turbine shifted to the left towards the surge line?
- In particular, why does the non-dimensional corrected mass flow decrease, while the pressure ratio stays approximately constant?
- The same question from a different angle: Why does the pressure ratio not decrease at a constant mass flow?
