The use of digital computer methods to control aero gas turbines is comparatively new. The paper attemps to cover their background and essential features in broad outline. It discusses the special properties of digital computer control systems in relation to hydromechanical and electric analog arrangements and the special problems of design and safety involved. Some results of practical tests on a large complex engine are presented and discussed, special emphasis being given to those techniques which are particular to digital systems. The paper finally suggests the directions in which future developments of these systems might move.
