This thesis is a continuation of a series of studies on automatic throttle compensation systems begun in 1963 by Lieutenant Commander G. R, Bell. £l] Previous investigations have been concerned with flight in a wings level attitude. This study will consider the effects of turning flight on the system. The system under consideration here is the Specialties, Incorporated, Automatic Power Compensator, (APC), an automatic throttle in use in the F-8 and F-4 aircraft. It utilizes feedbacks of angle of attack and normal acceleration. It was found important to differentiate between spurious perturbations and those perturbations from steady state introduced due to the aircraft entering a turn. This study was conducted by Lieutenant Richard D. Hartman at the United States Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California. The assistance given by Professor E. J. Andrews is greatly appreciated by the writer.
