This chapter introduces the fundamental systems and accessories of the gas turbine engine. Each one of these systems must be present to have an operating turbine engine. Section I describes the fuel system and related components that are necessary for proper fuel metering to the engine.
The second section discusses the theory and components of the lubricating system. Oil is the lifeblood of any engine. If the oil supply to the bearings should cease, within a matter of seconds the lubricating films would break down and cause scoring, seizing, and burning of the vital moving parts.
The third section tells of the ignition system used in the gas turbine engines and of various cockpit instruments used to measure engine performance.
