Preliminary investigation of the control of a gas-turbine engine for a helicopter / Richard P. Krebs

Krebs, Richard P.

An analog investigation of the power plant for a gas-turbine powered helicopter indicates that currently proposed turbine-propeller engine controls are satisfactory for helicopter application. Power increases from one-half to full rated at altitudes from sea level to 15,000 feet could be made in less than 4 seconds with either the rotor or propellers absorbing the engine power.
