The control devices for gas turbines can be sorted into two types: programmable (only hardware) or configurable (hardware and software).
The Programmable controller is an empty box which has to be programmed with GAP – the Woodward program language. This way, the control is completely custom made. The Woodward Atlas and MicroNet are programmable controllers.
The Configurable controller is a device equipped with hardware designed to satisfy application needs and in addition has a menu driven Software configuration to fit to application. Woodward GT250, GTC190, GTC100, GTC200 and 2301D-GT are configurable devices for gas turbine applications.
Gas fuel valves and other accessories should be added to the controllers in order to create complete control system on gas turbine.
