EVALUATION OF A PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLLER AND SEQUENCER IN A SHORE TRIALS ENVIRONMENT

The evaluation of a UEL programmable engine controller and programmable sequencer was carried out on a MOD(PE) shore trials facility at Rolls Royce Industrial and Marine Division headquarters, Ansty. The UEL equipment was on loan to Rolls Royce as part of a Department of Industry "Pre Production Order" scheme. The evaluation became the initial phase of an exercise to determine the most suitable control equipment for Rolls Royce Industrial and Marine engines in the 1980's. The paper describes the form of the evaluation from simulation trials through to engine testing. A review of the controller and sequencer philosophy is made and special programming techniques are high lighted. The suitablity of the equipment for industrial and marine applications is considered and the users impressions on handling are discussed. Finally reliability and accuracy aspects are reviewed.
