Advanced Control of Turbofan Engines describes the operational performance requirements of turbofan (commercial) engines from a controls systems perspective, covering industry-standard methods and research-edge advances. This book allows the reader to design controllers and produce realistic simulations using public-domain software like CMAPSS: Commercial Modular Aero-Propulsion System Simulation, whose versions are released to the public by NASA. The scope of the book is centered on the design of thrust controllers for both steady flight and transient maneuvers. Classical control theory is not dwelled on, but instead an introduction to general undergraduate control techniques is provided. Advanced Control of Turbofan Engines is ideal for graduate students doing research in aircraft engine control and non-aerospace oriented control engineers who need an introduction to the field.
Develops a thorough understanding of the challenges associated with engine operability from a control systems perspective, describing performance demands and operational constraints into the framework and language of modern control theory
Presents solid and rigorous theoretical support for classical and advanced engine control concepts, including a new stability analysis of min-max selector systems used in commercial engine control systems
Has a bottom-up, progressive approach establishing a unified framework for the analysis of classical and advanced engine control schemes, with a strong design orientation
Provides ample coverage of classical techniques and cutting-edge research literature, including publicly-released technical information from government and industry sources
Covers public-domain, high-fidelity simulation resources, allowing the reader to reproduce the simulations of the book and to develop a basis for independent controller benchmarking studies
