Based on a course on gas turbine engine controls developed and taught by the authors to Air Force, Navy, and Army engineers, this book covers the design of engine control and monitoring systems, for both turbofan and turboshaft engines. It focuses on four areas of interest: modeling of engine dynamics, application of specific control design methods to gas turbine engines, advanced control concepts, and engine condition monitoring. While the material is applicable to all air, land, and sea-based gas turbines, the majority of the book is concerned with aviation gas turbines. In addition to six chapters on engine control analysis and design, there are chapters on integration with aircraft systems, advanced engine control concepts, and engine monitoring and health management. Appendices cover fundamentals of automatic control systems, engine performance, and operability. The book is intended to provide a one-stop resource for understanding the design of modern turbine engine control and monitoring systems. It can also be used as a reference for engineers and researchers designing control and monitoring systems for other industrial equipment and systems. Jaw is a scientific monitoring consultant. Mattingly has 35 years of experience in engineering education.
