The trend toward electronic controls for turbine engines because of their flexibility in meeting the requirements of the more complex gas turbine operating cycles suggests possible problems in view of the minor electrical malfunctions routinely experienced by jet transport aircraft. High by-pass ratio turbine engines can provide a possible close coupling path for surges into engine control wiring and approaches to alleviate this possible problem are suggested, including component arrangement, shielding approaches, the use of protection devices and thorough surge testing of the developed systems.
