  • Publication number: 20200332725
    Abstract: A method of operating a gas turbine engine having a bleed air system with a switching valve, operable to switch between multiple air sources depending on an operating mode of the gas turbine engine (e.g. a motive powered mode or a standby mode), is described. The method includes operating the switching valve to provide pressurized air from a selected one or more of the multiple air sources to a cavity of the gas turbine engine having seals, and testing the switching valve to determine if the switching valve is functioning normally or abnormally. The switching valve is functioning normally when operable to switch between the multiple air sources and is functioning abnormally when switching between the multiple air sources is not possible. If the switching valve is determined to be functioning abnormally, the gas turbine engine is controlled to prevent a change of the operating mode.

  • Publication number: 20050141164
    Abstract: A low resistance fuse apparatus and methods of manufacture includes a first intermediate insulation layer, a second intermediate insulation layer, and a free standing fuse element layer independently formed and fabricated from each of the first and second intermediate insulation layers, The fuse element layer includes first and second contact pads and a fusible link extending therebetween. The first and second intermediate insulation layers extend on opposite sides of the free standing fuse element layer and are laminated together with the fuse element layer therebetween.
