ELECTRONIC ANALOG STUDIES FOR TURBOPROP CONTROL SYSTEMS 480192

DESIGN of stable turboprop control systems is greatly speeded up by the WAC electronic analog. This computing device simulates the physical relationship between the five prime variables involved: speed, torque, temperature, fuel flow, and propeller blade angle.
Although as many as 25 design characteristics may be involved in a control system, the analog can determine the optimum values for them in the course of one day.
The analog computing technique might be equally valuable in a number of other uses.
