Abstract : All aircraft gas turbine engines currently compromise compression system performance at some point(s) in their operating envelope to obtain 'adequate' stall margin. This work pursues the concept of active stall control to minirnize or eliminate this penalty, thereby improving the performance of any aircraft gas turbine engine.
