Abstract : The feasibility of automatic control of conventional steam-propulsion systems using digital control techniques was studied by simulating a DLG-9 class automatic steam-generation system on both general-purpose analog and digital computers. Digital algorithms, developed to provide the control functions previously supplied by continuous controllers, successfully controlled the simulated combustion system in closed-loop fashion. (Author)
