The digital control features are implemented in designing modeling of an engine where time consumed to test an engine model is reduced. To basically move an aircraft via the air and to produce thrust, we have to employ some type of propulsion system and the most extensively utilized form of propulsion system for modern airplane is gas turbine engine. This paper introduces virtual engine model on ZYNQ embedded platform with all the functions of an actual as turbine engine and it's connected to ECU for simulation process, where it generates real-time work environment parameters for testing and debugging. The input data fed to the model is fuel through on-board 12 bit XADC channel, providing PLA data sets to the INLET from external supply unit. Since there are numerous advancements in pipeline to improve the efficiency and performance of gas turbine engines, we can implement it by integrating all the individual code blocks into a single engine model and analyse the results. This improves the efficiency of the program to run the engine model within the given time by considering real-time parameters. Therefore debug-test-verify period will be optimised making way for advanced and robust thrust providers with maximum control features along with safety standards.
