There are several major factors influencing the development of modern turbomachinery control systems. First, the demand for fuel efficient engines with low emissions creates complex control requirements. Second, unmanned sites or plants where downtime is exceedingly expensive demand controls with high reliability and availability. In addition, there is a desire for controls to be programmable and to have the ability to communicate with data gathering and logging systems.

This paper describes the development and application of a digital control system which answers the above needs.
