Abstract:

An optimal integral control design program was applied to a linearized state variable model of the FFG-7 ship class gas turbine and Controllable Reversible Pitch CRP propeller main propulsion system. Various combinations of output parameters were investigated in an attempt to produce a feasible control design. Only one acceptable design was achieved which did not violate any physical constraints.
