Results of an analytical and a sea-level experimental investigation of a turbojet engine with proportional speed control are presented. Linear analysis and description of the engine as a first-order linear system proved adequate for analytical prediction of the response and the stability of the controlled engine, although instability calculations were found to be much more critical than response calculations.
