  • Publication number: 20210323685
    Abstract: A hybrid electric gas turbine propulsion system may comprise: a first propulsion system, a second propulsion system, and a third propulsion system. The first propulsion system may comprise a first fan, a first turbine, a first compressor, and a first electric motor, the first fan operably coupled to the first turbine and the first compressor by a first shaft, the first shaft coupled to the first electric motor, the first shaft configured to be disposed radially inward of a fuselage of an aircraft. The second propulsion system and the third propulsion system may be in accordance with the first propulsion system. The hybrid electric gas turbine propulsion system may be symmetric about a vertical plane extending through a neutral aerodynamic axis.

  • Publication number: 20060225431
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine, in particular a turboshaft engine, includes a spool having a turbine and a gas generator compressor mounted thereto, a source of heat positioned between the turbine and the compressor, a first shaft and a free turbine mounted to the first shaft, and a control system for transferring power between the spool and the shaft. The operating speed of the gas generator compressor is re-matched in order to improve the efficiency and surge margin of the gas generator compressor and to improve the transient performance of the gas turbine engine.
