(2) The maximum r.p.m. shown during the type tests.

(b) Minimum power off. The minimum power-off rotor speed must be established so that it is not less than 105 percent of the greater of --

(1) The minimum shown during the type tests; and

(2) The minimum determined by design substantiation.

(c) Minimum power on. The minimum power-on rotor speed must be established so that it is --

(1) Not less than the greater of --

(i) The minimum shown during the type tests; and

(ii) The minimum determined by design substantiation; and

(2) Not more than a value determined under 27.33(a)(1) and (b)(1).
