The method and apparatus for in-flight relighting of a turbofan engine involve in one aspect selectively controlling an accessory drag load on one or more windmilling rotors to permit control of the windmill speed to an optimum value for relight conditions.
What is claimed is: 1. A method for in-flight relighting a turbofan engine of an aircraft, the engine having at least two shafts, one of which is a high-pressure shaft mounted to a high-pressure compressor and a high-pressure turbine, wherein the high-pressure shaft is drivingly connected to a generator and the generator is electrically connected to an electrical load, the method comprising:electrically disconnecting the electrical load from the generator to reduce parasitic drag load on the high-pressure shaft;permitting ram air to rotate the high press...
