Starting Jet Turbine

  • Guys Plz Help.. How do u start a Gas turbine engine? What is the mechanism to begin the rotation of large fan blades?
  • the first thing….. there are compressors and turbines connected to each other through a single shaft known as a Spool…
    as a normal piston engine aircraft Gas turbine engines also have a starter to make the blades rotate… the starter in the Gas Turbine is located near the N2 High Pressure turbine( I HOPE I AM NT WRONG)… so when u engage ur starter the N2 HP turbine rotates, inturn rotating the High pressure compressor blades… since all of them are interconeected with a spool, the front fan N1 LP compressor rotates……
