Project Type MQP Submission date 2009-04-27 Authors Amanda J Kalish, AE Elyssa Rose Morrow, AE Michael Henry Powers, AE Stephen Rose, AE URN E-project-042709-140004 Sponsor Pratt and Whitney Title Design of a Micro-Turbine for Energy Scavenging from a Gas Turbine Engine Advisor Olinger, David J, ME Availability unrestricted
Gas turbine engine tests are important in determining engine performance and efficiency. The gas turbine energy industry is looking to use wireless sensors as a way of cutting time and money during engine tests, however, a method must be found to power these sensors. This project investigates the design, fabrication, and testing of a micro-turbine system to be placed into the fan flow of the gas turbine engine in order to scavenge energy from the flow to power wireless sensors.
