In the present work, the transient behavior of a single spool turbojet engine as a function of fuel flow rate is investigated, using fourth order nonlinear dynamic model based on the airplane longitudinal dynamics, compressor and turbine dynamics and dynamics of rotor. Taking into account the thermodynamic variables in all five components of the engine and representing desired parameters as function of time are contributions of the paper. Moreover, we use inter-component volume method in our study which results in more accurate simulations. In this method, by adding the pressure and temperature fluctuations, caused by saved mass, a more precise model is obtained. Taking advantage of this method and using the governing thermodynamic and Gas dynamic equations, the governing dynamic equations of engine are obtained. By solving the equations in MATLAB software, the influence of the fuel flow rate on the output variables is studied. It should be mentioned that fly considered horizontal and in specific height of 2500 (m) at all of the simulation period. Engine thrust is specifically considered as the desired modeling parameter. In addition, the variation in airplane velocity, as an important parameter in the internal fuel flow rate, is added to the simulations, resulting in more accuracy. Studying the dynamic behavior of the engine thrust is a pre-requisite to the design of appropriate controllers that is the next step of this research.
