With its research activities at the DLR sites in Cologne, Berlin, Göttingen and Trauen, the Institute of Propulsion Technology focuses on the development of high-performance and environmentally friendly aircraft engines and gas turbines for power generation. The research includes both the development and application of highly efficient methods and fast simulation procedures as well as the use of unique test benches and sophisticated measurement techniques. A core competence of the turbine department at the Göttingen site is the investigation of turbines with regard to increasing efficiency, as well as questions concerning heat transfer and the effectiveness of cooling methods. In addition, the interaction of components, such as the combustor with the turbine, plays an important role within the future research.
The aim is to transfer technologies, such as gas turbine blade cooling, to other areas and to further develop and utilize findings. High-temperature fuel cells appear to be very attractive for electric flight, but they require adequate thermal management in order to be used. Aspects such as weight and limited installation space have to be considered in particular, which ultimately addresses the efficient design and use of heat transfer mechanisms.
The Turbine Department offers you an entry into excellent cutting-edge research, space for your own ideas, international visibility and contact with our partners in science and industry.
