The EUROJET EJ200 is a collaborative engine between Rolls-Royce, MTU, Avio and ITP.
The EJ200 is a twin shaft reheated turbofan, with three low pressure (LP) and five high pressure (HP) compressor stages, powered by two single-stage turbines (LP and HP). The combustor is annular with airspray injectors. The engine reheat system features a three-stage manifold system and a convergent/divergent nozzle. Engine control is by an integrated Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) system.
The technology of the EJ200 engine makes it both smaller and simpler in layout than current powerplants of a similar thrust class while giving it lower fuel consumption and an unprecedented power-to-weight ratio - all vital factors in enhancing the multi-mission performance and effectiveness of combat aircraft.
EJ200's design emerged in the late 1980s following the formation of EUROJET Turbo GmbH in 1986 to co-ordinate and manage the project. EUROJET's partner companies are Rolls-Royce, Avio of Italy, MTU of Germany and ITP of Spain.
Among the most advanced features of the EJ200 are a fan design that gives high stability without IGVs, the application of blisks, wide-chord aerofoils, single crystal blades, an airspray combustion system, and an integral FADEC providing low pilot workload and comprehensive fleet management capability.
The first series production Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft were flown in February 2003 and during service, EJ200 will match, or exceed, the most demanding international standards for operational support required by the US, Europe and other International customers.
