Abstract
Aurora and Georgia Tech are bringing together a team of experienced control theory, engine design, engine control experts to perform research on next-generation distributed control architectures for turbine engines. The program combines new results in adaptive and distributed control of heterogeneous systems, unsteady modeling of engines, and advanced component control concepts, with the goal of creating system architectures and tools to enable distributed control to be practical and valuable in engines.
