The Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), Bangalore has coordinated the successful indigenous development of the Indian Light Combat (LCA), now named 'Tejas'. The Tejas is counted among the most advanced combat aircraft in the world, incorporating the latest state-of-the-art aircraft systems. The TEJAS requires ten high performance regenerative heat exchangers for its Environmental Control Systems (ECS) and Secondary Power Systems (SPS). The regenerative heat exchanger is one among these. It is required to evaluate the thermal performance of the regenerative heat exchanger as a part of qualification tests for flight worthiness. ADA has approached NAL to estimate the thermal performance of this heat exchanger before and after quality acceptance tests.
