An active engine control scheme for protection against compressor instabilities such as rotating stall and surge is presented. Compressor stability detection is accomplished via a parameter known as the correlation measure, which quantifies the repeatability of the pressure fluctuations in the tip region of a compressor rotor. This work investigates the integration of the correlation measure with an aircraft engine control system through the use of a stall margin control mode. The development and implementation of the stall margin mode are described. The effectiveness of the overall active control framework—an active compressor stability management system—is assessed using a computer simulation of a high-bypass, dual-spool, commercial-type turbofan engine.
