FUEL CONTROL

The patent application relates to a fuel control for a gas turbine power plant adapted for automotive use. It includes an open loop scheduling control for acceleration which varies the pressure drop across the metering orifice as a function of W/sub f/P sub 3 (W/sub f/ = fuel flow in pounds/hours, P sub 3 = compressor discharge pressure in pounds/square inch absolute) and varies the area of said metering orifice as a function of P sub 3 divided by another engine operating parameter such as turbine exhaust temperature to effectuate multiplication of the W/sub f/P sub 3 and P sub 3 values for establishing the value of W/sub f/, where W/sub f/P sub 3 is scheduled by the foot pedal position.
