Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to develop control theoretic concepts for distributed control of gas turbine engines, and develop a dynamic engine model incorporating distributed components in compressor dynamics, engine cycles, and engine control. The latest results in distributed control combined with adaptive control theory are extended for turbofan engine distributed control. Concepts and architectures for distributed control are developed that create tangible benefits from the distribution of closed-loop feedback around the engine. © 2009 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.
