A study of an Automatic Power Compensator with inputs of airspeed and angle of attack was conducted by means of a simplified analytical analysis and analogue simulation. Digital Computer programming was used for data reduction. The Chance Vought F-8 aircraft was used as the vehicle for the study. Loop gains were initially set by means of a simplified analysis based on the independent phugoid and short period motions. The validity of such an analysis was demonstrated by analogue simulation of the complete system. The system is feasible^ both for independent use or as a component of a complete automatic flight system.
