Abstract:

This report presents the results of a program conducted to evaluate the application of fluidics to an automatic start sequence and protective control system of an auxiliary power gas turbine engine. The program encompassed the engine selection, control design, and test of the fluidic controller known as an Engine Logic Pack. The program successfully demonstrated by engine test that fully automatic control of a gas turbine engine with fluidics is feasible and that the protective functions required for safety may be incorporated into this control by means of fluidic technology.
