The adaptation of high power aircraft gas turbines to the ground applications of pumping gas, generating electricity, or chemical processing has led to the development of a completely electronic fuel control system. The control system is versatile, presently encompassing single- and multiengine applications in a range from 3000 hp to 240,000 hp. Optimum acceleration and power limiting features are provided as well as safeguard functions for automatic remote engine operation over the total load range. The service experience accumulated in the past seven years on over 100 controllers is also discussed.
