The LV100 gas turbine engine is being developed for U.S. Army ground vehicle use. A unique approach for controls and accessories is being used whereby the engine has no accessory gearbox. Instead a high-speed starter/generator is mounted directly on the compressor shaft and powers all engine accessories as well as supplies the basic electrical power needs of the vehicle. This paper discusses the evolution of the electrically driven LV100 accessory system starting with the Advanced Integrated Propulsion System (AIPS) demonstrator program, through the current system to future possibilities with electric vehicle propulsion. Issues in electrical vehicle propulsion are discussed including machine type, electrical power type, and operation with a gas turbine.
