Propulsion Control Integration for Power Management 700818
Integration of propulsion controls can simplify the task of aircraft power management. Not only can integration ease the pilot's problem of adjusting engine power settings according to the flight mode, but it also enables improved propulsion system performance to be achieved and extends the regions of safe and stable operation. Such improvements to the inlet/engine compatibility by themselves warrant the use of control system integration, but once the controls are adapted for ease of data exchange they can easily accommodate power management functions and the processing of parameters for a maintenance monitor. One possible method of implementation is described utilizing state-of-the-art hardware.
