In October 2014, Price Induction deploys the latest version 1.6 of the software of its WESTT CS/BV virtual engine test bench to its customers around the world who are still under warranty or who subscribed to a Software Evolution Contract. New features about control systems,aerodynamics and equipment enhance the fields of applications of the WESTT CS/BV station.
- Control Systems: addition of a module to modify the regulation parameters while the engine is operating.
The user can switch regulation modes, modify the settings of the chosen loop in the corresponding schematics and observe in live the changes in the engine functioning. This new feature provides an efficient and user friendly interface for introduction courses to the principles of control systems.
- Aerodynamics: addition of velocity triangles for the low pressure turbine and the centrifugal compressor.
Low pressure turbine and high pressure compressor complete the aerodynamics module allowing the study of aerodynamics principles related to compression and expansion phenomenon.
- Equipment: exploration of the DGEN 380’s oil line and study of its components
The dynamic and interactive presentation of the oil line developed with 3DVia® is a new strong visual tool. The user will go through each component of the oil line to understand to operation principle of the whole system.
