FDE Quetion Fuel Flow And torque % in turboprops?

Recommended Posts

Hi!!I'm working on some flight dynamics, and ended setting up mostly everything right. I just don't understand where i have to set turboprop fuel flow..it's crucial to get the proper operating range of the aircraft...another thing: torque indicator gauges go over 100% reaching values near 125% !! I never experienced this!! I can reduce the right extreme at graph 1508 (turbine turboprop torque vs CN1) and get out the effect a little, but power gets reduced too...I thought of adding torque, but i want to keep the values colsest to the real ones. Adding torque will also make the aircraft accelerate too fast on takeoff... This may be a consequence of the fact that my prop rotates at min 200RPM, faster than standard (1700...if i remember well...)Have any idea?(of course my FDE is of my P-180 model...check "piaggio 180 newsletter" on AVSim screenshots forum")Mario NoriegaProud http://www.euroavia.net/common/images/logo_euroavia.gif"Euroavia Pisa: European Association of Aerospace Students" International Editor Member

Hi Mario,Have you had any luck in solving your problems? I have some recent experience in turboprop flight dynamics and would be interested in discussing the issue with you.If you are interested, email me at kuhn.41@osu.edudon
