Creating tools to improve efficiency and reliability.
Safran Aero Boosters is investing every year around 20% of its revenue to improve its products.
Here are some project we are working on :
Green test cell
The teams at Safran Aero Boosters are currently looking into solutions to reduce fuel consumption in test facilities and, at the same time, recover some of the energy produced by the engine so it can be converted into useful energy rather than letting it escape as heat while testing.
Solutions include automating engine control so the required test cycle can be monitored closer, and recovering the thermal energy from the exhaust gases to heat a water circuit. Or, when turbine engines are being tested, the kinetic energy from the shaft line can be recovered by a dynamo and used to produce electricity.
