The control and limiting of gas turbine speed and temperature is most readily achieved with an electronic fuel control system. The control system to be described is practical hardware for vehicular applications. The same basic electronics used with a suitable choice of fuel metering valve and choice of actuator for whatever means of torque transfer is employed, provide proper control for a turbine of any horsepower rating using liquid or gaseous fuels. Minor modification in the electronics can adapt the control for generator sets and other industrial applications.
