Abstract : A T63-A-700 gas turbine engine has been instrumented to measure performance parameters. Pressure and temperature monitoring systems have been designed, fabricated, and installed to ensure accurate measurement of performance parameters. All measured parameters have been compared against predicted thermodynamic cycle analysis. Design and control of selected engine systems have been modified to incorporate more precise engine control and safety.
