Self-tuning adaptive control algorithms, that employ explicit dead-time identification techniques, have been discussed in the literature vis-a-vis the diesel-driven power prime-mover. Such algorithms are numerically intensive owing to the complicated identification algorithms. This paper discusses the implementation of the above mentioned algorithms on a Texas Instruments' DSP 320C30 based system. This digital signal processor has sufficient numerical capability to carry out all the real-time computations at sampling intervals of 10 ms. It can also perform well in the matters of speed measurement and control generation without any significant additional hardware. The results of real-time tests are compared with that obtained using the Woodward Governor Company's 701 prime-mover controller
