Presented paper is focused on the influence of additional combustor chamber named inter turbine burner on turbofan engine unit parameters. Investigation has been made how changing selected engine parameters affect its performance. A comparison has been made between the baseline turbofan engine and the engine with ITB. Engine thermodynamics model was prepared in MATLAB software. Main combustion chamber was fueled by kerosene, commmonly used in aviation transport, while inter turbine burner by alternative fuel. As an alternative fuel were choose liquid hydrogen and methane. Numerical researches were carried out for take-off conditions. Engine specific thrust and specific fuel consumption were obtained as a function of bypass ratio, turbine inlet temperature, fan pressure ratio, HPC and LPC pressure ratio. The results of the study indicate that hybrid engine with additional combustion chamber fueled by hydrogen fuel is more efficient than other studied cases.
