Optimal discrete event control of gas turbine engines

Murat Yasar, Jinbo Fu, Asok Ray

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter presents an application of the recently developed theory of optimal Discrete Event Supervisory (DES) control that is based on a signed real measure of regular languages described in Chapter 1. The DES control techniques are validated on an aircraft gas turbine engine simulation test bed. The test bed is implemented on a networked computer system in which two computers operate in the client-server mode. Several DES controllers have been tested for engine performance and reliability. Extensive simulation studies on the test bed show that the optimally designed supervisor yields the best performance.
