One Lever Control for Variable Pitch Turboprop Aircraft
Department of Mechanics, Mathematics and Management, Politecnico di Bari, Via Orabona 4, 70125 Bari, Italy
The present work focuses on the control strategy concerning the propulsion system of a variable pitch turboprop aircraft. Extremely common solution for the management of the propulsion system of existing variable pitch turboprop aircraft considers a two-lever system for the control of both the turboprop output power and the propeller thrust. Such an approach translates, on one hand into a greater pilot responsibility and, on the other hand, into higher costs in terms of fuel consumption, aircraft maintenance and pilot training. In order to solve these drawbacks, an one-lever system for the control of the variable pitch turboprop aircraft propulsion system has been proposed. The design of this one-lever propulsion control has been carried at first by developing the whole aircraft ecosystem in Simulink© framework and then by implementing the control algorithm of the one-lever system.
