A new Interactive Cycle System has been developed by General Electric’s Aircraft Engine Business Group for the cycle analysis and performance optimization of conceptual and preliminary engine designs. This paper will explore some of the considerations in moving from a large, well-known, batch, detailed design, modeling system to a low-cost, flexible, responsive, user-friendly, interactive cycle analysis system. The resulting system utilizes menu screens for user input and data review, a modular program structure with stacking of modules to achieve the desired engine configuration, a library of component characteristics augmented by parametric component map generators, and an interpretive reader to permit real-time logic creation without the need for compiling.
