The Transition from Effective Aircraft Engine Control to Effective Industrial Engine Control 740848
The Allison T56 turboprop aircraft engine has been modified and converted into an efficient industrial powerplant. As a part of this transition, the aircraft engine control system had to undergo certain changes to adapt it for regulation of industrial engines. The differences in engine applications, installations, duty cycle requirements, etc were some of the considerations that had to be taken into account in the effort of making the industrial control system as effective as its aerospace counterpart. These problems and the approach to their solutions are discussed in this paper.
