CONCORDE A.I.D.S. POWERPLANT APPLICATIONS

Concorde AIDS data are used by British Airways for Performance Trend Monitoring, engine control law verification and Low Cycle Fatigue life usage sampling. This paper outlines the requirements for these monitors with reference to the special needs of the Concorde powerplant, together with the content of the Rolls-Royce computer program. The British Airways data acquisition, extraction and verification systems are also covered, together with the use of outputs within the airline organization. A re-appraisal of the objectives of Performance Trend Monitoring is given, and brief observations are made on future developments.
