Airshow China 2014 in Zhuhai

Price Induction announces its participation to the Airshow China 2014 in Zhuhai on November 11-16, 2014. Price will exhibit the DGEN turbofan engine and WESTT SOLUTIONS for the first time in China in Hall 1, Stand #D1-2.

The DGEN turbofan engine for general aviation will be on display at Price Induction’s booth #D-1-2 in Hall 1. Today, the DGEN 380 engine achieved over 1500 hours of testing, 6000 ignitions and 2200 endurance cycles. It is also used by an increasing number of universities and research centers worldwide including the ISAE-Supaero engineering school in France and the Civil Aviation University of China in Tianjin.

Besides, we will offer live demonstrations of the virtual engine test bench WESTT CS/BV on our booth. This very innovative learning system is particularly interesting for engine regulation, thermodynamics and aerodynamics studies. All interested people and especially professors, instructors as well as students are invited to discover its features and experience its wide range of educational applications.

Latest evolution of the WESTT CS/BV Solution

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.

ASME Turbo Expo 2014

From June 17-19, Price Induction will exhibit its DGEN turbofan engine dedicated to 4-5 seat Personal Light Jets on booth #402 at the ASME Turbo Expo 2014.We will also offer live demonstrations of the WESTT CS/BV Virtual Engine Test Bench, a unique simulation tool used by over 20 universities and research centres worldwide.

Headquartered in France, Price Induction has over 50 engineers who successfully conducted the DGEN turbofan development program up to presently TRL 7. Since 2010, Price Induction leverages its technology and know-how through ground applications of the DGEN engine and participation in R&T projects with renowned research institutes.

An engine test bench tooled up with a DGEN turbofan will indeed open a wide range of opportunities for your research by combining a great technological potential, a full manufacturer’s know-how, reliability, low operation cost and flexibility. Flexibility also from a dedicated engineering team which is keen to customize our technical offer to your research goals and collaborate on innovative projects about gas turbines, modern aircraft engines and control systems.

Our engineers look forward to meeting you in Düsseldorf and discuss how the DGEN technology could benefit to your future projects.
