Gas turbines are widely used to power aeroplanes because they are light, compact with a high power-to-weight ratio. In the turbojet engine, the main operating variables are: compressor pressure ratio (πc) and turbine inlet temperature (Tt4). These variables affect the specific thrust (Fs) and specific fuel consumption (S), which represent the main performance parameters. This paper describes performance analysis of unchoked turbojet engine with two parameters: inlet Mach number (M0) and compressor pressure ratio (πc).
