POWER LOSSES

There are two types of losses that must be considered in the performance analysis: those that affect the power available from the engine and those that must be added to the power required by the rotors. A convenient dividing line to distinguish between the two types of losses is the engine torquemeter, a standard component

of turboshaft engines. (On reciprocating engines, the input shaft to the transmission is the logical division point.)
