In this paper, a nonlinear model of a gas turbine system in a thermal power plant is studied. Due to the impact of the outlet temperature on the turbine speed performance and the multivariability of the system model, the design of the nonlinear multivariate controller has been considered. Comparison of the results with the PID industrial controller method shows the desired performance of the designed system.
