Abstract : The lecture outlines the basic methods of component matching which are central to the prediction of gas turbine performance. Steady state prediction of off-design performance must be done at the beginning of an engine development program, to ensure that the engine can satisfy all the mission requirements. The matching techniques can be extended to predict transient performance, which is essential for controls development and to ensure good engine handling. The large amount of computation required demands the use of computer modelling and the role of modelling in the development program and the basic requirements for performance modelling are described.
