Price Induction and NASA Glenn Research Center Collaboration is Celebrated with the First Engine Run

NASA Researchers will benefit from the DART Project (DGEN380 Aero-propulsion Research Turbofan) for years to come.

Price Induction, the developer of the DGEN 380 turbofan, is proud to announce the conclusion of a WESTT BR platform installation at the NASA Aero-Acoustic Propulsion Laboratory at the Glenn Research Center (GRC) in Cleveland Ohio USA.

The installation is the result of an 18 month project that was initiated in 2014 when the use of the DGEN 380 engine as an acoustic research tool was validated by NASA after testing in GRC’s anechoic chamber.

The Price Induction and NASA teams collaborated closely to adapt the DGEN380 engine and its associated testing platform to NASA’s specific needs. Two of the most challenging aspects of the project were the design of a fully mobile system and significant modifications of the engine’s internal architecture while keeping all operational and safety aspects unaltered.

In April of this year, a group of NASA engineers attended five days of intense training conducted by Price Induction engineers from France. As shown on the pictures below, the official first engine cycles were run by Dr. Daniel Sutliff, lead researcher and DART project manager during an internal inauguration.

NASA is one of a few client benefitting from the real DGEN 380 engine test bench (WESTT BR) and the virtual engine test bench (WESTT CS/BV) both provided by Price Induction. NASA and Price Induction have committed to develop their collaboration around propulsion research in the long-term.

 Price Induction would like to take this opportunity to thank NASA for its confidence during this challenging project.

WESTT CS/BV at ELISA aerospace

ELISA Aerospace (ISAE Group), the French Aerospace engineering school located in Saint-Quentin, France, has become the 39th WESTT CS/BV partner!

Eight teachers just received a training session to master the operations of the virtual test bench and understand how this educational solution can be leveraged as a new way for control, aerodynamics and thermodynamics teaching.

Within the 5-year mandatory program, the WESTT CS/BV will be used to illustrate propulsion theory in the first two years and turbofan design in the last 3 years.

See you this summer at the Paris Le Bourget Air Show on booth B94, Hall 2B, to speak with the WESTT community!

TRANSFRON3D : Projet financé par les Fonds Européens de Développement Régional (FEDER)

Le projet TRANSFRON3D porté par POCTEFA/FEDER a pour objectif principal de faire collaborer des centres technologiques, des universités, des grandes entreprises et des PME des deux côtés de la frontière franco-espagnole, afin de fabriquer des pièces à forte valeur ajoutée grâce à des processus de fabrication additive.

transfon 3d


Ces technologies de fabrications additives sont encore à un stade précoce et nécessitent un savoir-faire pluridisciplinaire (dans les matériaux, la simulation, les procédés de fabrication, la caractérisation, etc…) actuellement dispersé entre différents acteurs.

Partenaires du projet :

  • TECNALIA (Leader du projet)

 Cette approche représente un changement radical dans les méthodes de travail et dans les technologies de fabrication. Elle offre des avantages comme la réduction drastique de matière première utilisée, la flexibilité de conception et la réduction du délai de livraison.

Price Induction Westt BV66 at DCI

After the WESTT CS/BV virtual engine test bench, DCI (Défense Conseil International) just acquired the WESTT BV 66 interactive station, the new WESTT test bench from Price Induction. The installation and training took place on 25 and 27 January 2017 in the Rochefort Air Force base 721. A team of four instructors from French Defense Aeronautical Institute (FDAI) – a DCI / Dassault Aviation top-class joint center – participated in the training led by Price Induction.

On one hand, instructors will benefit from the innovative and dynamic content of the bench specifically designed for Part 66 initial training. On the other hand, DCI trainees will autonomously be able to go into a large panel of topics in depth, from flight mechanics to propulsion. Thanks to the integrated FADEC, the students will have the opportunity to conduct some real-time simulations of a modern turbofan engine, the DGEN 380, which should ease understanding of complex propulsion notions. Technician students from the Middle-East Air Forces will be the first classes to benefit from this innovative station.

Beyond this acquisition, DCI and Price Induction have already launched a collaboration of co-development of additional BV66 content in order to continuously improve aeronautical training offers.

WESTT BV 66 interactive learning station in Aviation Competence Centre (ACC)

On Thursday 16th of February,
Price Induction installed a WESTT BV 66 interactive learning station in Aviation Competence Centre (ACC), a key European player in Part 147 initial training located on Maastricht airport, Netherlands. The BV 66 solution will be leveraged for aircraft aerodynamics and propulsion training. In particular, students will benefit from live hardware-in-the-loop simulation of the DGEN 380 turbofan engine thanks to the original FADEC installed on the bench. ACC’s instructors were trained on Friday and first simulations were run successfully!

ACC and PI have already some collaboration plans in the coming months to develop further BV 66 functionalities and modules.

On Saturday, Price Induction was invited to participate in ACC’s Open Day. This annual event is a great opportunity for high school students, their parents and families to discover ACC’s facilities, volunteer students from ACC to do some demonstrations on the aircrafts, instructors to explain ACC training program and career opportunities in MRO; and, industry partners to show off their capabilities. In short, lots of fruitful interactions with all this passionate community as shown on the pictures below!

Price Induction warmly thanks ACC’s management and instructors for their trust in this new WESTT solution!
