Presents application of a fuel-distribution-control method to actual gas-turbine engine operation. The control used was designed to equalize the flow to the 14 nozzles of a gas-turbine engine. The maximum measured deviation from perfect distribution during engine operation was 3.8 percent. It was shown that the control model is capable of maintaining this accuracy independently of changes in fuel-nozzle resistances from 0 up to 1.46 times the resistance of a normal engine fuel nozzle.
