A Review Of The Industrial Development And Usage Of Electronic Governors
The paper presents a review of electronic governors as developed and used by industry. The current interest in the conservation of energy has led many users of prime mover equipment to develop better control technology for their equipment. This paper deals with the development of the electronic governor and discusses the effects of these control devices on the operation of the industrial equipment. The basic operation of governors is discussed, with the fundamental operational behavior of governors being presented, including a brief review of the applicable control theory parameters. Also, the industrial development and usage of the electronic governor is described. Several areas are pointed out by industrial users for development of electronic governors. The operational characteristics of several electronic governors are given along with the advantages and disadvantages of using these governors.
