Transient response of gas turbine engines depends on several parameters including engine type, components’ characteristics, and operational condition. This paper briefly describes the general methodology and approach for transient sensitivity analysis of various gas turbine engines, and the results of a computer program for analysis of the transient behavior of a single spool turbojet. Based on the method of intercomponent volumes, the general methodology applicable to transient analysis of any gas turbine based system has been developed. The method results in a set of stiff, time dependent non-linear ordinary differential equations (ODE) which can be solved by an appropriate ODE solver. The coefficients of the differential equations depend on the design and operational condition of the components represented by the component maps. The initial conditions of the ODE can be any steady state operating point of the engine. A steady state engine model provides these initial conditions. The program has the capability to match the components, and obtain a steady state operating point for the engine, accept a fuel protocol and predict the transient behavior of the engine. The program has produced satisfactory results for step, ramp and sinusoidal fuel inputs, as well as ramp variation in nozzle exit area.
