Project TitleCommercial Modular Aero-Propulsion System Simulation (C-MAPSS) Version 2
Track CodeLEW-18315-2

This Software is Export-Controlled restricted and will only be released to United States Citizens. The Commercial Modular Aero-Propulsion System Simulation (C-MAPSS) version 2 software is a transient simulation of a large commercial turbofan engine (up to 90,000-lb thrust) with a realistic engine control system, written in MATLAB/Simulink (The MathWorks, Inc.). The software supports easy access to health, control, and engine parameters through a graphical user interface (GUI). C-MAPSS v2 has some enhancements over the original, including three actuators rather than one, the addition of actuator and sensor dynamics, and an improved controller, while retaining or improving on the convenience and user-friendliness of the original. C-MAPSS v2 provides the user with a graphical turbofan engine simulation environment in which advanced algorithms can be implemented and tested. C-MAPSS can run user-specified transient simulations, and it can generate state-space linear models of the nonlinear engine model at an operating point. The code has a number of GUI screens that allow point-and-click operation, and have editable fields for user-specified input. The software includes an atmospheric model which allows simulation of engine operation at altitudes from sea level to 40,000 ft, Mach numbers from 0 to 0.90, and ambient temperatures from -60 to 103 °F. The package also includes a power-management system that allows the engine to be operated over a wide range of thrust levels throughout the full range of flight conditions.
