Turbo Prop Fan Engine Identification: Practical Issues

  • Gennady G. Kulikov
  • Haydn A. Thompson
Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


In this chapter, the identification techniques considered in previous chapters are applied to a real-life power plant. Dynamic models of a turbo prop fan aero engine are identified. Practical issues of closed-loop identifiability are also demonstrated.
