The objective was to determine whether optimal control synthesis methods provide superior means for designing jet engine controllers. The methods design controllers with more capability andor can be exploited to provide less expensive hardware. For newer kinds of engines the cost to design should be less than for presently used methods. Volume 1 summarizes optimal control design methodology. A paper design of a command and disturbance controller shows that good power lever command response can be achieved the same controller is designed to be insensitive to inlet duct buzz. A command controller is synthesized and wind tunnel tested. This controller is a good approximation to time optimal with surge-stall, TT4, and flameout constraints. Small-amplitude control responses are precise. There is strong stability.
