Rolls – Royce has run a demonstrator engine precisely dedicated to the development of a new advanced lean – burn and low – emissions combustion scheme for the first time. This scheme is being created for forthcoming jet engine programs.
At the end of January 2018, The Advanced Low Emissions Combustion System demonstrator accomplished all its goals for the first time on a testbed in Derby, UK. The demonstrator is evaluated for a lean – burn system that upgrades pre-mixing of fuel and air preceding ignition. The lean – burn system will be a significant change in distributing the Intelligent Engine, as it builds on innovative technology and digital competences to provide essential profits for customers.
Andy Geer, Chief Engineer at Rolls Royce said: “We are very proud to see this technology come to life for the first time. We are confident that the ALECSys system will offer significant benefits for our customers and look forward to putting the demonstrator through its paces.”
