Abstract: A gas engine system controller: calculates a delay calculation value of a knocking occurrence ratio; determines a primary target ignition timing; sets the primary target ignition timing as a current ignition timing if the occurrence ratio difference is positive and an ignition timing does not exceed a converted value of a first advance rate; determines whether a rapid advance condition is satisfied if the occurrence ratio difference is positive and the ignition timing difference exceeds the converted value of the first advance rate; sets a secondary target ignition timing as the current ignition timing if the rapid advance condition is not satisfied, the secondary target ignition timing obtained by adding the converted value of the first advance rate to the previous ignition timing; and determines the current ignition timing so as to achieve a second advance rate greater than the first advance rate if the rapid advance condition is satisfied.
