The control of free turbine engines on turboprops, is accomplished by:

  • a propeller control lever used to select:
    1 – propeller RPM
    2 – turbine temperature
    3 – turbine RPM

  • a fuel control lever used to select:
    4 – propeller RPM
    5 – torque
    6 – turbine temperature

The combination which regroups all of the correct statements is :
A: 1 – 3 – 5
B: 1 – 5 – 6
C: 3 – 4 – 6
D: 2 – 4 – 5

The primary reason for a limitation being imposed on the temperature of the gas flow is to:

A: ensure that the maximum acceptable temperature within the combustion chamber is not exceeded.
B: ensure that the maximum acceptable temperature at the turbine blades is not exceeded.
C: prevent damage to the combustion chamber from overheating.
D: prevent damage to the jet pipe from overheating.

B: fuel to fly for 30 minutes at holding speed at 1500 ft (450 m) above aerodrome elevation in standard conditions.
C: fuel to fly for 45 minutes at holding speed at 1000 ft (300 m) above aerodrome elevation in standard conditions.
D: fuel to fly for 60 minutes at holding speed at 1500 ft (450 m) above aerodrome elevation in standard conditions.

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: B

In a gas turbine engine lubrication system, the oil to fuel heat exchanger provides:

A: automatic controlled fuel heating by engine oil to prevent icing in the fuel filter.
B: fuel cooling to prevent vapour locking interrupting the fuel supply to the nozzles.
C: fuel heating as required whenever fuel filter clogging is detected.
D: oil cooling through thermal exchange with the fuel.
