In the present paper, a transient performance code is employed to predict on-wing test data of the IAE-V2500 engine mounted on an Airbus A320-232. The test data was recorded by the engine control system and may serve as an open basis for validation of future transient studies. For the current investigation, the employed code considers the fundamental equations of the constant mass flow method as well as heat transfer effects by a lumped parameter approach.

The study focuses on seven accelerations and one deceleration. Engine test data was gathered with 10Hz sampling rate, imprinting the applied time step of the model. First, the steady-state matching of the test data was conducted. Subsequently, the measurement quantities fuel flow, inlet temperature and inlet pressure were prescribed as time-varying boundary conditions to the transient model. The results of the standard transient model and the model including thermal effects were compared with temperatures, pressures and shaft speeds. The LPT outlet temperature and the working line excursion in the booster map were examined in detail. The outcome concurs with the original statement that thermal effects are mandatory to enhance model accuracy. Lastly, a sensitivity analysis of the thermal input parameters was accomplished and its influence on model prediction investigated.
