Representatives of the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM, a part of the “Zhukovsky Institute” National Research Center) took part in the meetings in Brussels on two international aviation projects carried out under the auspices of the European Commission, work on which began in 2020.

The first one is IMOTHEP (Investigation and Maturation of Technologies for Hybrid-Electric Propulsion) project. The core of IMOTHEP is an integrated end-to-end investigation of hybrid-electric power trains for regional and short-to-medium haul 50-150 seat aircraft. The project coordinator is ONERA, France. CIAM is the project coordinator from the Russian side.

The second one is FutPrInt50 (Future Propulsion and Integration towards a hybrid-electric 50-seat regional aircraft) project. Its aim is to identify and promote technologies which enable the use of a hybrid-electric aircraft with up to 50 seats for commercial purposes.

The project is being coordinated by the Institute of Aircraft Design at the University of Stuttgart, from Russia – by the “Zhukovsky Institute” National Research Center.

Both of the projects are characterized by a large-scale cooperation: they involve over 30 major research organizations and universities from Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, France, Sweden, aircraft and engines manufacturers: Airbus, Embraer, Leonardo, Safran, GE Avio, MTU, etc.

Among the Russian participants there are: CIAM (hybrid propulsion systems), TsAGI (aircraft design concept), GosNIIAS (onboard systems), “Zhukovsky Institute” National Research Center (technological roadmap), MAI (parts of hybrid propulsion systems).

The main task of CIAM is to perform the assessment and to evaluate the effectiveness of the use of high-temperature superconductivity in electrical equipment for hybrid propulsion in such aircraft. Based on the calculation and experimental research data, estimates will be given for the level of technology development in 2025-2035.

According to the Director General of CIAM Mikhail Gordin, participation in the European industrial and academic consortium will allow the Institute not only to gain additional experience in conducting large-scale complex projects, it also will provide greater insights into its problematique from the standpoint of foreign partners – to forecast perspective technologies development in the field of electric and hybrid propulsion.

One of the important project’s results will be a roadmap for the development of technology and of the demonstrators enabling the creation of advanced aircraft.

The work on the creation of domestic hybrid power plants (PP) for aviation has received a new impetus. According to the results of a competitive tender of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM, a part of the ‘Zhukovsky Institute’ National Research Center) became the lead contractor for the “Electrolet SU-2020” R&D work.

The Electrolet SU-2020 [SU stands for PP] research project is designed for three years and is a continuation of the Electrolet SU research project, which was successfully completed in 2019 by the ground tests of a hybrid PP demonstrator developed at CIAM.

Research on hybrid and electrical PP is one of the aviation technology trends which can significantly affect the future aircraft design.

The efforts of almost all the leading aerospace scientific and industrial centers worldwide are directed toward research and development of hybrid or electric PPs. In the future, the electric PPs will significantly reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

The level of domestic technologies in this area corresponds to, and in some areas exceeds, the global level. In particular, state-of-the-art 2nd generation high temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes are produced in Russia.

A number of works have been completed to create demonstrators, including the world's first 500 kW electric HTS motor.

“There is every reason to believe that only such a technology will allow in the future to create electric motors and generators with a capacity of 10-20 megawatts for hybrid power plants for short- and medium-haul aircraft,” explains the Director General of CIAM Mikhail Gordin. “As part of the new research, we will finalize the demonstrator of the hybrid power plant, taking into account the data obtained during its ground tests, and its flight testing.”

The ‘Zhukovsky Institute’ National Research Center will coordinate the work, SuperOx, SibNIA named after S. A. Chaplygin, MAI, USATU, and other organizations will participate in the project.

- The Institute has shown the possibility of adapting a modern automobile engine to an aviation version, - says Lev Finkelberg, project supervisor, head of department of CIAM. - An evaluation was made of using the engine on a twin-engine 9-seater and a single-engine 6-seater aircraft for regional transport.

The recent tests are the result of one and a half years of work on the project. They were carried out on a propeller test bench of LLC "OKBM" in Voronezh by the specialists of CIAM, NAMI, and OKBM.

During the tests, engine characteristics were obtained in the range from ground idle to take-off mode, its ignition and throttle response were checked. The results confirmed the characteristics declared in the technical requirements specification for power-to-volume ratio, fuel consumption and engine weight.

According to the project supervisor, the most labour-consuming task was to adapt the fuel system, ignition, and control system to ensure engine operation under aviation rules.

The CIAM engineers have solved a number of issues associated with the specific design of units to be adapted and their location on the engine. The main difficulty was to obtain the required characteristics, because an automobile engine practically never works in “aviation” modes.

It is planned to continue research on the APD-500 aircraft engine demonstrator created on the base of the ‘Kortezh’ car engine. The engine will be tested in a thermal chamber under expected service conditions, and later – on an experimental aircraft.

Its focus became a powerful 3D Pro DMP X320 printer. The laboratory is equipped with all necessary equipment for research and development of advanced aircraft GTE designs from metal powder compositions.

Ready engineering solutions in the field of additive technology, developed and experimentally confirmed by CIAM specialists, will be introduced for implementation into the industry.

To gain experience in creating durable and efficient structures manufactured using additive methods, to conduct their qualification assessment and to form a knowledge base on the properties of product materials will allow two agreements signed by CIAM. The first one – for the use of the printer – was signed with NPO SYSTEM JSC (SIU System), the Russian representative office of the 3D Systems, and a leading integrator of 3D solutions in Russia and the CIS. The second agreement – for the delivery – was with Gazprombank Leasing JSC.

Before the official launch of the Laboratory, the agreements were signed by Mikhail Gordin, Director General of CIAM, Ashkhen Ovsepyan, Director General of NPO System, and Maksim Agadzhanov, Director General of Gazprombank Leasing.

“This is an important event,” Mikhail Gordin remarked. “Additive methods become one of the key manufacturing technologies that enable to create a competitive product. One of their main advantages is the speed of manufacturing complex parts, of which there are a lot in an aircraft engine. The opening of the 3D laboratory at CIAM is a step towards an integrated development and implementation of these technologies into the aviation industry.

The head of NPO System Ashkhen Ovsepyan agreed with him.

“Additive technology is a new stage in the development of modern production,” she said. “We are very pleased that by contributing a metal 3D printer to CIAM, we have contributed to the development of modern aircraft engines. And we are waiting for new projects where we can realize our experience and capabilities."

The topic was continued by the general director of Gazprombank Leasing Maksim Agadzhanov.

“The implementation of this project is an interesting experience for our company,” he said. “Today, financing of high-tech equipment on a finance lease basis takes less than one percent in the Russian market. However, with increased expertise in companies and increased requirements for the quality of products, high-tech equipment will be introduced at a faster pace, including through lease financing."

The system’s functionality had previously been checked on autonomous test benches. The recent tests proved its effectiveness as an engine part. The study was conducted within the project of "electrification" of the engine for a more electric aircraft.

Electrical technologies constructively simplify the gearbox of the engine aggregates, reduce its weight and its midsection - the cross-sectional area - and, accordingly, the resistance.

Another advantage of "electrification" is to get rid of the "diseases" of the lubrication system, the mechanical drive of which is rigidly attached to the engine rotor and depends on reducing or increasing its speed. For example, when the engine rises to a height, oil pumps reduce the amount of oil supplied or pumped out. The use of electric pumps eliminates the issue of excess or lack of oil due to separate performance control of the pressuring and scavenging units.

Engine control is carried out by a digital automatic control system with an on-board mathematical model. The CIAM specialists have developed a control system that controls not only the “behavior” of the engine, but also the quality of its lubrication and its fuel efficiency.

The tests confirmed the normal operation of the oil system with electric pumps in the entire range of operating modes.

CIAM presented its latest developments at the joint exhibition stand of the National Research Center "Zhukovsky Institute" organizations.

Among the VIP guests to visit the stand were the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The exposition’s eye catcher was a model of a flying laboratory based on the Yak-40 aircraft for testing a 500 kW high-temperature superconducting hybrid power plant demonstrator. The tests are scheduled for 2020. The advanced hybrid power plant will be used on 9-18-seater aircraft for regional transport.

The aircraft electrification topic was complemented by a 60 kW all-electric hydrogen fuel cell power plant demonstrator. The MAKS visitors curious to see for which aircraft the engine was designed, could visit the static display where a demonstrator of a light manned Sigma-4 two-seat aircraft with an electric power plant was exhibited.

Continuing with the electricity theme, a strategic trilateral agreement was signed at MAKS between CIAM, the Ufa State Aviation Technical University (USATU) and the «Kristall» Design Bureau. The priority plans for cooperation, as outlined by the Director General of CIAM Mikhail Gordin, the Director General of the “Kristall” Design Bureau and the Vice-Rector for Research and Innovation of USATU Georgy Ageyev, include basic and applied research in the field of hybrid and electric engines, as well as the development of a 520 kW electric engine, its tests, production and introduction into service.

At the stand, a number of CIAM developments was also presented in the field of fuel-efficient engines of new configurations for small aircraft. For example, the TRD-60 experimental gas turbine engine. Its weight is only 20 kg, thrust – 0.65 kN. On the basis of the engine demonstrator designs of various configurations have already been developed for installation on light aircraft and helicopters. Thanks to less vibration and noise, altitudes up to 12 km and high thrust-to-weight ratio, the engine creates a higher level of comfort for the aircraft passengers.

Another eye catcher was a rotary-piston engine with components from new generation materials – inter- and metall-ceramic matrix composite materials created using powder metallurgy technologies. Their main advantages are corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand extreme loads and temperatures.

A part of the exposition was devoted to the results of CIAM research in the field of application of additive manufacturing technologies for the creation of advanced aircraft engines. The Institute exhibited light-weight gas turbine blades, elements of premixing swirlers of combustion chambers and a new generation heat exchanger.

At MAKS, the Institute received several awards. The joint stand of the National Research Center "Zhukovsky Institute" organizations became a winner in 2 nominations of the ‘Golden Wings MAKS-2019” contest: Innovative Project and Event. Another highlight was the «Aircraft Builder of the Year 2018» diploma awarded to CIAM by the Union of the Aviation Industrialists of Russia. On behalf of the Institute, it was received by the official representative of the Russian Federation in the Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), head of sector of CIAM Artur Mirzoyan.

Representatives of the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM, a part of the “Zhukovsky Institute” National Research Center) took part in the meetings in Brussels on two international aviation projects carried out under the auspices of the European Commission, work on which began in 2020.

The first one is IMOTHEP (Investigation and Maturation of Technologies for Hybrid-Electric Propulsion) project. The core of IMOTHEP is an integrated end-to-end investigation of hybrid-electric power trains for regional and short-to-medium haul 50-150 seat aircraft. The project coordinator is ONERA, France. CIAM is the project coordinator from the Russian side.

The second one is FutPrInt50 (Future Propulsion and Integration towards a hybrid-electric 50-seat regional aircraft) project. Its aim is to identify and promote technologies which enable the use of a hybrid-electric aircraft with up to 50 seats for commercial purposes.

The project is being coordinated by the Institute of Aircraft Design at the University of Stuttgart, from Russia – by the “Zhukovsky Institute” National Research Center.

Both of the projects are characterized by a large-scale cooperation: they involve over 30 major research organizations and universities from Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, France, Sweden, aircraft and engines manufacturers: Airbus, Embraer, Leonardo, Safran, GE Avio, MTU, etc.

Among the Russian participants there are: CIAM (hybrid propulsion systems), TsAGI (aircraft design concept), GosNIIAS (onboard systems), “Zhukovsky Institute” National Research Center (technological roadmap), MAI (parts of hybrid propulsion systems).

The main task of CIAM is to perform the assessment and to evaluate the effectiveness of the use of high-temperature superconductivity in electrical equipment for hybrid propulsion in such aircraft. Based on the calculation and experimental research data, estimates will be given for the level of technology development in 2025-2035.

According to the Director General of CIAM Mikhail Gordin, participation in the European industrial and academic consortium will allow the Institute not only to gain additional experience in conducting large-scale complex projects, it also will provide greater insights into its problematique from the standpoint of foreign partners – to forecast perspective technologies development in the field of electric and hybrid propulsion.

One of the important project’s results will be a roadmap for the development of technology and of the demonstrators enabling the creation of advanced aircraft.

The work on the creation of domestic hybrid power plants (PP) for aviation has received a new impetus. According to the results of a competitive tender of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM, a part of the ‘Zhukovsky Institute’ National Research Center) became the lead contractor for the “Electrolet SU-2020” R&D work.

The Electrolet SU-2020 [SU stands for PP] research project is designed for three years and is a continuation of the Electrolet SU research project, which was successfully completed in 2019 by the ground tests of a hybrid PP demonstrator developed at CIAM.

Research on hybrid and electrical PP is one of the aviation technology trends which can significantly affect the future aircraft design.

The efforts of almost all the leading aerospace scientific and industrial centers worldwide are directed toward research and development of hybrid or electric PPs. In the future, the electric PPs will significantly reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

The level of domestic technologies in this area corresponds to, and in some areas exceeds, the global level. In particular, state-of-the-art 2nd generation high temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes are produced in Russia.

A number of works have been completed to create demonstrators, including the world's first 500 kW electric HTS motor.

“There is every reason to believe that only such a technology will allow in the future to create electric motors and generators with a capacity of 10-20 megawatts for hybrid power plants for short- and medium-haul aircraft,” explains the Director General of CIAM Mikhail Gordin. “As part of the new research, we will finalize the demonstrator of the hybrid power plant, taking into account the data obtained during its ground tests, and its flight testing.”

The ‘Zhukovsky Institute’ National Research Center will coordinate the work, SuperOx, SibNIA named after S. A. Chaplygin, MAI, USATU, and other organizations will participate in the project.

The recent tests are the result of one and a half years of work on the project. They were carried out on a propeller test bench of LLC "OKBM" in Voronezh by the specialists of CIAM, NAMI, and OKBM. During the tests, engine characteristics were obtained in the range from ground idle to take-off mode, its ignition and throttle response were checked. The results confirmed the characteristics declared in the technical requirements specification for power-to-volume ratio, fuel consumption and engine weight. According to the project supervisor, the most labour-consuming task was to adapt the fuel system, ignition, and control system to ensure engine operation under aviation rules. The CIAM engineers have solved a number of issues associated with the specific design of units to be adapted and their location on the engine. The main difficulty was to obtain the required characteristics, because an automobile engine practically never works in “aviation” modes. It is planned to continue research on the APD-500 aircraft engine demonstrator created on the base of the ‘Kortezh’ car engine. The engine will be tested in a thermal chamber under expected service conditions, and later – on an experimental aircraft.

Its focus became a powerful 3D Pro DMP X320 printer. The laboratory is equipped with all necessary equipment for research and development of advanced aircraft GTE designs from metal powder compositions.

Ready engineering solutions in the field of additive technology, developed and experimentally confirmed by CIAM specialists, will be introduced for implementation into the industry.

To gain experience in creating durable and efficient structures manufactured using additive methods, to conduct their qualification assessment and to form a knowledge base on the properties of product materials will allow two agreements signed by CIAM. The first one – for the use of the printer – was signed with NPO SYSTEM JSC (SIU System), the Russian representative office of the 3D Systems, and a leading integrator of 3D solutions in Russia and the CIS. The second agreement – for the delivery – was with Gazprombank Leasing JSC.

Before the official launch of the Laboratory, the agreements were signed by Mikhail Gordin, Director General of CIAM, Ashkhen Ovsepyan, Director General of NPO System, and Maksim Agadzhanov, Director General of Gazprombank Leasing.

“This is an important event,” Mikhail Gordin remarked. “Additive methods become one of the key manufacturing technologies that enable to create a competitive product. One of their main advantages is the speed of manufacturing complex parts, of which there are a lot in an aircraft engine. The opening of the 3D laboratory at CIAM is a step towards an integrated development and implementation of these technologies into the aviation industry.

The head of NPO System Ashkhen Ovsepyan agreed with him.

“Additive technology is a new stage in the development of modern production,” she said. “We are very pleased that by contributing a metal 3D printer to CIAM, we have contributed to the development of modern aircraft engines. And we are waiting for new projects where we can realize our experience and capabilities."

The topic was continued by the general director of Gazprombank Leasing Maksim Agadzhanov.

“The implementation of this project is an interesting experience for our company,” he said. “Today, financing of high-tech equipment on a finance lease basis takes less than one percent in the Russian market. However, with increased expertise in companies and increased requirements for the quality of products, high-tech equipment will be introduced at a faster pace, including through lease financing."

The system’s functionality had previously been checked on autonomous test benches. The recent tests proved its effectiveness as an engine part. The study was conducted within the project of "electrification" of the engine for a more electric aircraft. Electrical technologies constructively simplify the gearbox of the engine aggregates, reduce its weight and its midsection - the cross-sectional area - and, accordingly, the resistance. Another advantage of "electrification" is to get rid of the "diseases" of the lubrication system, the mechanical drive of which is rigidly attached to the engine rotor and depends on reducing or increasing its speed. For example, when the engine rises to a height, oil pumps reduce the amount of oil supplied or pumped out. The use of electric pumps eliminates the issue of excess or lack of oil due to separate performance control of the pressuring and scavenging units. Engine control is carried out by a digital automatic control system with an on-board mathematical model. The CIAM specialists have developed a control system that controls not only the “behavior” of the engine, but also the quality of its lubrication and its fuel efficiency. The tests confirmed the normal operation of the oil system with electric pumps in the entire range of operating modes.

CIAM presented its latest developments at the joint exhibition stand of the National Research Center "Zhukovsky Institute" organizations. Among the VIP guests to visit the stand were the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The exposition’s eye catcher was a model of a flying laboratory based on the Yak-40 aircraft for testing a 500 kW high-temperature superconducting hybrid power plant demonstrator. The tests are scheduled for 2020. The advanced hybrid power plant will be used on 9-18-seater aircraft for regional transport. The aircraft electrification topic was complemented by a 60 kW all-electric hydrogen fuel cell power plant demonstrator. The MAKS visitors curious to see for which aircraft the engine was designed, could visit the static display where a demonstrator of a light manned Sigma-4 two-seat aircraft with an electric power plant was exhibited. Continuing with the electricity theme, a strategic trilateral agreement was signed at MAKS between CIAM, the Ufa State Aviation Technical University (USATU) and the «Kristall» Design Bureau. The priority plans for cooperation, as outlined by the Director General of CIAM Mikhail Gordin, the Director General of the “Kristall” Design Bureau and the Vice-Rector for Research and Innovation of USATU Georgy Ageyev, include basic and applied research in the field of hybrid and electric engines, as well as the development of a 520 kW electric engine, its tests, production and introduction into service. At the stand, a number of CIAM developments was also presented in the field of fuel-efficient engines of new configurations for small aircraft. For example, the TRD-60 experimental gas turbine engine. Its weight is only 20 kg, thrust – 0.65 kN. On the basis of the engine demonstrator designs of various configurations have already been developed for installation on light aircraft and helicopters. Thanks to less vibration and noise, altitudes up to 12 km and high thrust-to-weight ratio, the engine creates a higher level of comfort for the aircraft passengers. Another eye catcher was a rotary-piston engine with components from new generation materials – inter- and metall-ceramic matrix composite materials created using powder metallurgy technologies. Their main advantages are corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand extreme loads and temperatures. A part of the exposition was devoted to the results of CIAM research in the field of application of additive manufacturing technologies for the creation of advanced aircraft engines. The Institute exhibited light-weight gas turbine blades, elements of premixing swirlers of combustion chambers and a new generation heat exchanger. At MAKS, the Institute received several awards. The joint stand of the National Research Center "Zhukovsky Institute" organizations became a winner in 2 nominations of the ‘Golden Wings MAKS-2019” contest: Innovative Project and Event. Another highlight was the «Aircraft Builder of the Year 2018» diploma awarded to CIAM by the Union of the Aviation Industrialists of Russia. On behalf of the Institute, it was received by the official representative of the Russian Federation in the Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), head of sector of CIAM Artur Mirzoyan.
