This paper is an overview of aero gas turbine engine starting systems and discusses the system design considerations and integration with other aircraft systems.


Review of a range of recent publications on the subject, aiming to provide an introduction to modern aero gas turbine engine starting systems.


Provides basic information on starter types and their limitations, and why some starter types are more favoured in modern installations. The effects of altitude and temperature are discussed which may not be initially considered as variables affecting aero start systems.


This paper provides further information on the starting systems of modern aero gas turbines and the considerations associated with integration and efficiency.
