Nonlinear Gas Turbine Modelling

Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


In this chapter several nonlinear model representations are presented along with a general methodology for nonlinear system modelling. Polynomial NARMAX and neural network models are presented in more detail and nonlinear models for the engine are estimated. It is clear that in order to model the global dynamics of the gas turbine a nonlinear model is required.
