I haven't found the answer in the forum or elsewhere, but maybe I have searched badly, in which case please forgive me in advance. For a steady nominal operation of a turbofan, I have heard that the mass flow rate is driven by the sonic throat condition at the inlet of the high-pressure turbine.
However, I have also heard that if the mass flow rate is too high the compressor can be partially choked, and then eventually fully choked. But, correct me if I am wrong, if we are fully choked in the compressor, the mass flow rate will be fixed. Therefore, what will happen for the sonic throat condition at high-pressure turbine ? Which one is going to fix the mass flow rate between the high-pressure turbine throat and the fully choked compressor ?
