Controller design for marine gas turbine systems should consider three measures of performance: transient control, steady-state accuracy, and disturbance rejection. This paper presents and compares two common types of controller design in terms of these measures. The goal of the controllers was shaft speed control. To meet this goal, a classical Proportional-plus-Integral controller was designed and compared to a modern Linear Quadratic Regulator design. The controllers’ performances were evaluated with respect to the three measures mentioned above, with disturbances being input as oscillations in shaft torque due to seaway cycling.
