Abstract : The article discusses programs of regulating modern aircraft turbine engines with respect to conditions of stable engine operation. The application of new engine versions connected with the introduction of dual-rotor, ducted-fan engines, intended for greater and greater supersonic velocities, requires different regulation programs, which ensure an optimum course of engine characteristics. The process of controlling an engine as a control object is realized by a control link, which reacts through a regulating agent to the control parameter. The selection of a regulation program affecting the course of engine characteristics depends upon the tactical-technical requirements set up for the aircraft for which the engine is intended. Simultaneously the regulation program should ensure that under variable flying conditions high efficiency of engine systems is possible, and should preclude the danger of unsatisfactory engine operation and of thermal and dynamic overloads which could lead to engine failure or at least to a shortening of the engine's service life. The requirements mentioned must be realized by a control program in a way ensuring simplicity and operational reliability of the system of engine control organs. (Author)
