AUTOMOTIVE GAS TURBINE FUEL CONTROL
A fuel control useful for automotive-type gas turbines and particularly advanced gas turbines utilizing variable geometry components to improve mileage and reduce pollution emission is disclosed. The fuel control described compensates for fuel density variations, inlet temperature variations, turbine vane actuation, acceleration, and turbine breaking. These parameters are utilized to control various orifices, spool valves and pistons in a desired manner.
