Abstract:

The Marine Gas Turbine control systems in present use in the US Navy are of such significant technological age that new design techniques could lead to more optimal performance and increased plant efficiency. To this end, a new real time Marine Gas Turbine simulation method is needed for advanced controller design and implementation. A modeling method is shown which utilizes real time sequential linearizations to approximate the true nonlinear response of the NPS Boeing 502-6A test facility. A validation of this simulation approach is presented. The method has immediate application to advanced controller design, especially to the design of modern regulators Linear Quadratic, model reference controllers, and real time diagnostics. jhd
