    Never heard of 650V. Good to see.

    And also its always best that if they want to increase production, open a new facility. Becomes easier to determine what is needed for equipment, creates new jobs, have a brand new facility of newest requirements, etc etc.

    Good news.

    The new tool production site with an area of ​​2.4 thousand square meters will produce tooling and tools intended for assembling parts and assemblies of a number of industrial engines, as well as aircraft power plants NK-32 series 02, NK-12MP, NK-25 and a new promising high-power Izdeliye.

    Interesting... so they will continue to make the NK-25 for the Tu-22M3s, and the NK-32 for the Blackjacks, and the NK-12MP is for the Bears... I wonder if the new high power engine is for the PAK DA (some variant of the PD-35) or if it is for the PAK DP high speed interceptor?

    Never heard of 650V. Good to see.

    Replacement for French engines used in the Ka-226T and Ansat type helicopters... there is a VK-800V as well, which I think might be better for the Ka-226T at high altitudes...

    Good to see these new engines going into serial production.... such small engines were a gap for Russia as most trainers and light helicopters were not made in the Soviet Union...

    A. Inozemtsev: the PD-35 project does not stop, it will be shifted for a couple of years12.02.2022.

    Completion of the development of a high-power engine for civil aviation PD-35 is shifted by at least two years due to an increase in the production of PD-14, PD-8 and PS-90A engines. About itinformsTASS with reference to the Managing Director - General Designer of UEC-Aviadvigatel JSC Alexander Inozemtsev.

    “According to PD-35, we had planned deadlines until 2027-2028. Now, due to all the events, [the deadlines] are being shifted a couple of years to the right, because the funds have now been redistributed to increase the volumes of PD-14, PD-8, PS-90A. This is a forced measure, but nothing stops,” he said on the sidelines of the Perm Engineering and Industrial Forum.

    Earlier, Alexander Inozemtsev already spoke about the postponement of the PD-35 engine. “The PD-35 project will go a little slower, with a shift to the right for two or three years, because gigantic money is needed. Without a doubt, we will assemble and test a demonstrator engine by 2024, no matter how hard it is. And then let's move on to the situation. But we will understand for sure, having assembled the engine, where we are in terms of technology, we are creating technologies for the long-haul aircraft market, ”he said on August 18 during the Army-2022 forum. Alexander Inozemtsev added that the main forces will now be applied to replicate the PD-14 and PS-90A engines.

    On June 27, the government approved a new program for the development of the aviation industry until 2030. More than 770 billion rubles will be allocated for its implementation. According to the government's new plans, Russian airlines should receive 1,036 domestic aircraft by 2030. Of these, 142 SSJ-New aircraft, 270 MS-21-310 aircraft, 140 Ladoga TVRS-44 aircraft, 70 Il-114-300 aircraft, 178 L-410 and 154 "Baikal" (LMS-901). Deliveries of new helicopters will amount to 764 machines. It is assumed that all this equipment will fly on domestic engines. According to the program, over the next eight years, 4964 aircraft engines of various modifications will be made in Russia.

    Flight tests of the PD-8 engine have begun

    As reported on December 26, 2022, the Rostec State Corporation, which is part of the United Engine Corporation JSC (UEC), began flight tests of the PD-8 power plant designed for the SSJ NEW short-haul passenger liner and the Be-200 amphibious aircraft installed on the flying laboratory Il-76LL, owned by the LII named after M.M. Gromov JSC "United Aircraft Corporation" (UAC). The main operational data are recorded - speed, pressure, temperature, as well as additional parameters necessary to confirm the design decisions made and ensure the safety of the operation of the power plant.

    On the part of bmpd,
    we point out that, judging by the published photographs, flight tests of a prototype of a promising bypass turbojet engine PD-8 have begun at the LII named after M.M. Gromov in Zhukovsky on an Il-76LL flying laboratory aircraft with registration number "76529". This aircraft (serial number 073410308, serial number 08-07) was originally built in 1977 for the Iraqi Air Force as a military transport aircraft Il-76 of the first modification, in 1989 it was returned to the USSR and converted into a flying laboratory Il-76LL4 (registration number first USSR-76529, then RA -76529) for testing new engines installed under the wing in place of one of the standard D-30KP engines. In 1989-1990, it was used to test the D-236T propfan engine, and in 1990-1994 - to test the D-27 propfan engine. After that, the board was stored in Zhukovsky for 20 years. After repair since November 2015, as an Il-76LL , it was used for flight tests of the PD-14 engine.

    The creation of a promising PD-8 engine with a take-off thrust in the basic version of 7900 kg is being carried out by the UEC with the lead role of JSC UEC-Aviadvigatel (Perm). The PD-8 engine is being created for the new maximum "import-substituted" modification of the SSJ100 regional aircraft, called SSJ NEW. It is also possible to replace the engines of the D-436 family of Zaporozhye production with the PD-8 engine, in particular, on the Be-200 amphibious aircraft. In the future, based on the PD-8, it is possible to create a whole line of engines, including the powerful PD-8V helicopter engine.

    Testing of the gas generator of the PD-8 engine began in 2021, and bench tests of the first prototype of the PD-8 engine began in early 2022. At the end of October 2022, Yury Shmotin, Deputy General Director - General Designer of the UEC , announced that bench tests of three PD-8 prototypes were already underway. Certification of the PD-8 engine by the Federal Air Transport Agency is very optimistically planned for 2023.

    CIAM passed tests of the combustion chamber of the VK-800SM engine

    As part of the development work on the creation of the VK-800SM turboprop engine, in the period from January 15 to March 17, 2023, it successfully passed tests at the CIAM test bench named after. P.I. Baranov autonomous installation of the combustion chamber VK-800SM, manufactured at the Ural Plant of Civil Aviation (UZGA).

    The tests were carried out in order to confirm the calculated parameters of the combustion chamber and check its ignition in the entire range of operating altitudes, the press service of the UZGA reported.

    At the first stage, data were obtained on the completeness of combustion, the smoothness of the start-up and the unevenness of the temperature field of the gas flow in the circumferential and radial directions in stationary modes of operation. The results obtained confirm the correctness of the calculations performed by the UZGA specialists and prove the correctness of the technical solutions incorporated into the design of the combustion chamber.

    At the second stage, tests were carried out to check the ignition of the combustion chamber at all operating heights with the determination of the ignition boundaries.

    “The results obtained so far have shown a serious excess of the launch altitude relative to the technical task. Reliable ignition of the combustion chamber at altitudes up to 8000 m was confirmed. During the tests of the gas generator at the UZGA stand, more than 100 launches were performed with the ignition test from one candle and reduced mains voltage. All of them were successful. Engineers are always interested in the limiting regimes that a structure can withstand,” said Ilya Medvedev, chief designer of the engine.

    In the future, together with CIAM, additional tests are planned to determine the reliability of ignition as part of the engine over the entire range of operating altitudes and taking into account the opportunity to increase the launch altitude, he added.

    It is also planned to test an autonomous installation of a centrifugal compressor using the CIAM experimental base. Tests will confirm the design parameters of the compressor, including air flow, pressure increase, efficiency, gas dynamic stability margins. Successful completion of this stage of testing will be the key to fulfilling the basic data set by the terms of reference for the engine.

    The test results of autonomous combustion chamber and centrifugal compressor installations will be included in the conclusion on the possibility of the first flight of the engine as part of an aircraft.

    The VK-800SM turboprop engine is being created by the Ural Civil Aviation Plant. The power plant is designed for the aircraft LMS-901 "Baikal". The VK-800SM is also planned to be used on the L-410 and the UTS-800 training aircraft. The design documentation for implementation in hardware in 2019 was handed over to UZGA representatives by the developer of the VK-800, UEC-Klimov JSC.

    The new development of the UEC will increase the overhaul life of aircraft engines up to two times

    The Research Institute of Engine Technology and Organization (NIID, a branch of the United Engine Corporation) has developed a method for hardening the surface layer of compressor blades for gas turbine engines. It will increase the overhaul life of power plants by one and a half to two times, the UEC press service reported.

    NIID employees have been working on the project for two years. At the moment, the development is being tested on the AI-222-25 technological engine.

    “The new method made it possible to increase the hardening depth by almost 2.5 times and increase the fatigue strength of the blades by more than 18%. As for the resource characteristics, it contributes to an increase in the overhaul life of the engine by about 1.5-2 times, ”said Sergey Pavlinich, director of the NIID branch of JSC UEC.

    Engine VK-650 V successfully completed engineering and autonomous tests, 05.18.2023.

    The VK-650 V engine has successfully passed engineering tests. Autonomous tests of power plant components were carried out jointly with TsIAM them. P.I. Baranov. The United Engine Corporation (UEC, part of Rostec) plans to produce ten prototypes of the engine by the end of the year. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.

    It is noted that four out of ten engines are used in flight tests as part of the Ansat helicopter. And in 2024, the power plant must be certified.

    “The new engine will outperform Western models in terms of performance. For example, compared to foreign counterparts, the VK-650V will have greater takeoff power and better specific characteristics, ”said Evgeny Prodanov, director of the VK-650 program at the UEC-Klimov enterprise, whose words are quoted in the message.

    It is emphasized that the engine with minimal modifications can be used as part of various UAVs. Also, experts are working on the issue of using the power plant on the Yak-152 aircraft. In addition, the potential scope of the VK-650V is foreign-made helicopters.

    Earlier it was reported that a full-size model of the engine was presented at the HeliRussia-2023 exhibition, which takes place from May 18 to 20 at the Moscow Crocus Expo IEC.

    And now also its bigger brother!

    Another foreign engine ready to be replaced.

    Wonderful news, the Ka-60/62 is a great helicopter whose development stalled because of lack of money and local engines.

    Furthermore the same engine could be used also for something else.

    A turboprop derivative could also be used on a drone (in case Russia would want something larger than what a VK-800 could power), on the composite derivative of the An-2, the SibNIA TVS-2DTS, instead of the American garret engine, or even for an eventual larger version of the Baikal, should the need arise.
    Tests of VK-1600V helicopter engine demonstrator completed

    The United Engine Corporation has completed testing of the VK-1600V helicopter engine demonstrator. The first prototypes of the product have already been assembled - their bench tests are planned to be completed by the end of this year, and in 2024 flight tests will begin as part of the Ka-62 helicopter. This was reported in the press service of the UEC.

    The VK-1600V is intended for installation on Ka-62 helicopters under the import substitution program for the French turboshaft engine (TVAD) Ardiden 3G from Safran Helicopter Engines (formerly Turbomeca). The design of the VK-1600V allows further development of various modifications, including for use in drones and as part of the power plants of light passenger and transport regional aircraft.

    “VK-1600V engines have high fuel efficiency and low life cycle costs. The power of the VK-1600V in takeoff mode is 1400 hp. and 1750 hp – in the 2.5-minute power mode. At the same time, we managed to reduce the delivery weight by 10% and reduce the specific fuel consumption in all modes compared to analogues, ”said Anton Kolosov, chief designer of the VK-1600 JSC UEC-Klimov.

    The power plant is controlled by the BARK-15V automatic regulation and control unit, the development and manufacture of which is also carried out at UEC-Klimov. In addition to the function of monitoring and controlling engine systems, it has the function of diagnostics and troubleshooting.
