The Garrett GTCP36-300 Series Auxiliary Power Unit is being developed for use on advanced technology transport aircraft in the 150-passenger size class. The first application will be the Airbus Industries A320 Aircraft. The APU uses a 6:1 pressure ratio, single-stage compressor and turbine, driving a single-stage load compressor and accessory gearbox. The 480 horsepower APU delivers compressed air to the aircraft pneumatic system and drives a customer furnished 90 kva, 24,000 rpm electrical generator. State-of-the-art aerodynamics, materials, and digital electronics are used to give the user-airlines an APU delivering maximum performance with minimum envelope, weight, and cost of ownership.
