The unique control problems associated with vehicular gas turbine engines are forcing the requirement for more direct measurement and control of vehicular gas turbine operating parameters. Two of the most important parameters are gas generator turbine inlet temperature and engine flameout. The major problem controlling these parameters has always been the lack of low cost sensors with sufficient accuracy and response for closed loop control along with the life required for economical operation. Two sensors have been developed which have the necessary response and accuracy for application to vehicular gas turbine controls. These sensors are also rugged and reliable and will provide the required long life. A fluidic temperature sensor measures turbine inlet temperature and an ultraviolet radiation sensor detects the presence of flame. Both sensors have electronic outputs and are readily adaptable to present electronic control systems. The principle of operation, accuracy and response data, along with application and installation information is presented for both sensors.
