Synthesis procedures for nonlinear stochastic feedback control of gas turbine engines were developed and evaluated. Modern estimation and control procedures based upon separating the stochastic and deterministic aspects of the control problem were employed. The resulting closed-loop control consists of nonlinear deterministic feedback control logic designed using piecewise-linearpiecewise-optimal techniques, and an estimator designed using nonlinear filtering logic. Engine variables estimated from noise-corrupted measurements are fed back through the deterministic control logic to generate commanded inputs to the engine. Mode-switching logic was developed to provide smooth transition between small-signal regulation and large-signal transient modes of estimatorcontroller operation.
