Abstract:
VRDE has developed Wankel type rotary engine to achieve high power output & fuel efficiency for indigenization programme of UAVs. This engine is meeting all performance parameters needed for intended aerial vehicle. This paper describes the testing methodology followed by development engineers to prove the endurance and reliability of UAV engine for airworthiness certification. This paper gives the brief about testing carried out on the Wankel engine, failures faced during endurance testing and their rectification to enhance the life of the engine to achieve hundred test cycle mark. This paper also briefs about the test set up, endurance test cycles simulating the practical operating conditions.
