In the opening part of the subject the history and the development of the control systems of the aircraft turbine engines (ATE) is described. Subsequently the aircraft turbine engine as subject of control is analysed by means of motion equations. The motion equations are used for solving both steady states and mainly for transient states. In the subject the attention is given to the Full Authority Digital Electronic Control. The course also teaches methods and techniques of controlling, managing and regulation for piston aircraft engines.
- Syllabus of lectures:
1) Aircraft piston engines controls, carburetor managing, fuel injection managing
2) Aircraft piston engines ignition systems managing and regulation
3) Aircraft piston engines additional controls
4) Managing and regulation of aircraft piston engines equipped with fixed pitch propellers
5) Managing and regulation of aircraft piston engines equipped with controllable pitch propellers
6) Propeller governors
