Gas turbines play an important role in power generation and aeroengines. An extended survey of methods associated with the control and systems identification in these engines, Dynamic Modelling of Gas Turbines reviews current methods and presents a number of new perspectives.- Describes a total modelling and identification program for various classes of aeroengine, allowing you to deal with the engine's behaviour over its complete life cycle- Shows how the above regime can be applied to a real engine balancing the theory with practical use- Follows a comparative approach to the study of existing and newly derived techniques thus offering an informed choice of controllers and models from the tied-and trusted to the most up-to-date evolutionary optimisation models- Presents entirely novel work in modelling, optimal control and systems identification to help you get the most from your engine designsDynamic Modelling of Gas Turbines represents the latest research of three groups of internationally recognised experts in gas turbine studies. It will be of interest to academics working in aeroengine control and to industrial practitioners in companies concerned with their design. The work presented here is easily extendible to be relevant in other areas in which gas turbines play a role such as power engineering.
