Application of a Programmable Engine Control to the Gas Turbine 770963
Electronic control of the gas turbine engine is now widely accepted. Advances in electronic technology have afforded the controls manufacturers with several alternative methods of design. This paper describes in detail the successful application of a programmable control unit combining analog and digital circuit techniques for the ERDA/Chrysler Upgraded turbine engine. In addition to the Chrysler program this Programmable Analog Control has been applied to turbines of several hundred horsepower, several thousand horsepower and tens of thousands of horsepower.
