In the Russian Federation, a turboprop engine is being developed for an L-410 aircraft

Ural Civil Plant aviation (UZGA) will produce VK-800S engines designed for L-410UVP-E20 aircraft, as well as for other light aircraft, the aviation portal reports

The development of the project in the framework of import substitution deals with a separate division of the company in St. Petersburg. The customer is the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia.

According to the design engineer of the enterprise, Andrei Melekhin, "now the production of prototypes of the VK-800С is underway and by the end of May three prototypes should be assembled." In the summer of this year, it is planned to begin bench testing of engines in the fall to go on flight tests.

To get a type certificate on VK-800С in UZGA plan in 2020 year. The engines will be used only Russian components.

The company intends to begin mass production of engines immediately after passing the certification. According to Melekhin, “there is already an order for two L-410UVP-E20 aircraft with new Russian-made engines from the Ministry of Industry and Trade”.

Recall that the production of Czech regional L-410 aircraft has been localized at the Uralsky plant.

Currently, L-410UVP-E20 aircraft with М601 and H80 engines from GE Aviation Czech are operated in Russia (former Czech motor-building enterprise Walter, acquired by 2008 by the American company GE Aviation - a division of General Electric).

It is reported that “VK-800С is a turboprop modification of the helicopter turboshaft engine VK-800В, which is being developed by“ ODK-Klimov ”.” VK-800С is designed for multi-purpose airplanes with a carrying capacity of 1000 – 1500 kg.

    And more about the engines- “Ground-based bench tests of a large-scale model of a high-speed ramjet engine being developed as part of the European-Russian Hexafly International project will be completed next year, adviser to the director general of the Central Institute of Aviation Motor Engineering (TsIAM) for Interfax-AVN told the activities of Vladimir Palkin.

    "This project, which is ongoing now, should be completed next year. Its main goal is bench testing. Further, within the framework of the next European project, it is planned to conduct flight tests of such a module. But this is already underway in 2020," V. Palkin told Interfax -AVN "at the International Engine Forum MFD-2018 in Moscow.

    He recalled that TsAGI and CIAM are involved in the project from Russia, the European Space Agency (ESA) and research laboratories from France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium from Europe. Financing of the European companies participating in the project goes through the European Commission, and Russian - through the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

    The unique test bench available to CIAM allows testing large-scale models of high-speed ramjet engines at flight speeds of about 7-8 Mach numbers, i.e. hypersound, - V. Palkin noted.

    According to him, as a result of tests already conducted, a positive effect on traction was obtained.

    In Palkin, he said that an institute from Australia will be involved in the flight tests, which at the beginning of the XNUMXs successfully conducted flight tests of two samples of large-scale models of such an engine.

    The interlocutor of the agency explained that the difference between the current engine model and those that were tested earlier is that it uses a convertible air intake. Moreover, if in the traditional scheme it is located below, then here, on the contrary, from above.

    “This module runs on hydrogen. If we used to test a sample that was made of special steel, then in order to make them longer in time, a model with a copper insert was made. Copper, as you know, is a very good heat conductor, and this makes it possible to remove more heat and extend the test time of such a model, "V. Palkin said.

    According to him, today the test duration is about 20-25 seconds. Because this is not a cooled model, but the temperature inside the combustion chamber exceeds 2300-2400 degrees Kelvin. At the entrance, at speeds of the order of 7 Machs, it is 1850-1900 degrees Kelvin. Naturally, the traditional materials used in modern engines do not withstand this temperature.

    Today we already use a number of ceramic composite materials, which give hope that we can realize the idea of ​​creating an engine that works for quite a long time at hypersonic speeds, "V. Palkin said.

    This is a European project, it goes under the brand name of creating a power plant for a passenger aircraft with a flight speed of about 7 Machs. Here the technology for the power plant is being worked out, and then there is an idea in Europe to create a passenger plane with such flight speeds. Naturally, it will be a business jet type aircraft. "

    Here! Fine!
    Adjust the thrust modification (if necessary) and from here it (TVS-2DTS):

    And with Honeywell TPE331-12UAN it is better not to rush. You can order 10 pieces, but not 200!

    But will this engine not work for the granddaughter of An-2? The name is unforgettable. And then there is Amerovsky.

      TVS-2DTS is an airplane, but there is a bigger engine in my opinion ... well, yes, 1650 hp. on the screw ... Ours - half. For this plane you need just between. wassat

        For the An-3, dating back to the Soviet era, the VK-1500 engine (1500 hp) was originally developed, but in Zaporozhye on the Motor Sich, in the mid-2000s the entire project was “buried”, due to the lack of orders. I don’t know, Klimovtsev’s work may have continued.

      There would be an engine, and a modern base for its production, and an airplane and even airplanes and other flying objects for him would be found right away.

      Is this engine suitable for drones? We have problems with this.

    And for the new version of the AN-2, that TVS-2dts, it will not work?

      With a slight decrease in performance (of the aircraft), it will do.
