  • Patent number: 11459960
    Abstract: A method for checking the maximum available power of a turbine engine of an aircraft equipped with two turbine engines configured to operate in parallel and together to supply a necessary power to the aircraft during a flight phase includes: placing one of the turbine engines in a maximum take-off power regime, and adjusting a power supplied by the other turbine engine, such that the turbine engines continue to supply the necessary power to the aircraft during the flight phase; determining a power supplied by the turbine engine placed in the maximum take-off power regime, and processing the supplied power determined in this way, in order to deduce a piece of information relating to the maximum available power.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10435167
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for automatically controlling an operating mode of a turboshaft engine of a helicopter, comprising a step (10) of receiving data (27, 28, 29) that are representative of the flight of the helicopter; a step (11) of selecting the turboshaft engine for which a change of mode would be most relevant; a step (12) of determining an operating mode of said turboshaft engine, known as the selected mode, selected from a plurality of predetermined operating modes; and a step (14) of ordering the operating mode of said turboshaft engine into said selected mode. The invention also relates to a corresponding control device.
