CONSIDERATIONS OF CONTROL OF GAS TURBINE AND DIESEL ENGINES WITH CONTROLLABLE PITCH PROPELLERS

Consideration is given to the control of gas turbine and Diesel engine propulsion machinery when used in conjunction with controllable pitch propellers. A sequencer technique is presented for achieving smooth operational mode changes in arrangements from a single propeller and two engines up to any number of propellers and engines. A thrust computation concept for one engine driving two propellers is also described. In this system, the control setting on one handle establishes the amount of thrust delivered by that propeller totally independently of the setting on the opposite control handle.
