“All Electric” Controls and Accessories for Ground Vehicle Gas Turbine Propulsion Systems 860238

This paper discusses the use of electromechanical devices as the kinematic portions of a microprocessor based gas turbine control system.
Specific applications are:
  1. 1.
    An electric motor driven, positive displacement pump, which provides metered high pressure fuel to the distribution manifold. Fuel metering to be provided by varying the motor angular velocity.
  2. 2.
    An electric motor driven lube oil pump.
  3. 3.
    Electromechnical actuators for motion and control of compressor and power turbine variable geometry.
  4. 4.
    A starter/generator integral with the gas generator.
    Topics covered include:
    • Comparison to conventional hydro-mechanical systems.
    • Response characteristics of the fuel pump and actuator systems.
    • Brushless D.C. motor characteristics.
    • Power electronics requirements for brushless D.C. motors.
    • Control electronics interface with brushless D.C. motor systems.
    • Reliability and maintainability issues.
    • Diagnostic/prognostic enhancements.
