Control of Mobile Steam Powerplants 700118

The control of small mobile Rankine cycle powerplants presents a number of problems that are much more difficult than they at first appear. This paper attempts to present a review of the basic performance characteristics of typical individual components, the control functions and requirements of the powerplant, the control systems used in typical powerplants, and some new concepts that show promise of giving simpler, less expensive, and more reliable control systems for typical Rankine cycle systems.
