Abstract [en]

Volvo Aero has developed the turbines for the Hydrogen and Oxygen turbopumps for the Vulcain and Vulcain 2 engines used for Ariane 5. For the new European upper stage engine, Vinci, Volvo Aero has maintained the same responsibility for the turbines as during the Vulcain development. In Europe there are presently a number of technology programs to prepare and mature new technologies, for example the Vinci demo and the Vulcain X program. This paper presents the effort at Volvo Aero to prepare the turbine technology for the next cryogenic ELV engines. The requirements on engine, turbopump and turbines will be described. Potential new concepts which meet the new requirements will be discussed for GG and Expander cycle engines. Also the need for new method development to increase the accuracy of turbine behavior as well as decreasing development risks will be presented. Furthermore a demonstration program for a new generation turbine for the Hydrogen Turbopump, TPX, will be presented and also the Vinci demo program.
