Engine tests were conducted in order to demonstrate effectiveness and practicability of H control theory to helicopter engines. An engine control algorithm is designed by H control theory, which meets robust stability requirements and nominal performance requirements described in frequency domain. Simulation and engine test results show that H controllers with feedforward element have better control performance than PI controller with feedforward element, especially, less power turbine speed overshoots are observed in rapid torque decreasing tests.
