Abstract : The patent concerns the following: an engine power control system for a turboprop engine equipped with a constant speed propeller governor is provided with means to manipulate fuel flow in response to the corrected torque and corrected speed of the engine. The computer section of the engine power control system uses engine oil as the working media. These features enable the use of contaminated fuel, or fuels of varying quality, without requiring filtration or compensating adjustments to the control system.
