The report presents design and performance characteristics obtained from tests at the Naval Ship Engineering Center, Philadelphia. The objective of the tests was to demonstrate that the series turbine principle would supply fast and reliable load response without the loss of efficiency, over an acceptable range of load demand. A second objective of the tests was to demonstrate the feasibility of a self-recycling automatic boiler control. Test results indicated that the self-regulating concept of control is sound and yields satisfactory system stability and response. (Author)
