In a power plant, turbine or engine, governor is connected to generator. Generator runs at constant rated

speed also at particular load. If generator is running at full load and suddenly it trips off (i.e. load becomes

zero), there is a possibility speed may go high enough to break the shaft because the turbine or the engine is

still generating the power. There has to be some device, which can control the input (either steam or fuel) to

the turbine or engine as the load decreases or increases. By governors we can control the speed of

generators. Flywheel is used to smoothen out speed over a cycle of rotation. i.e. it is a energy storing and

releasing device over a cycle. By gyroscope we can control the guidance.

Sensitiveness of Governors

If a governor operates between the speed limits N1 and N2, then sensitiveness is defined as the ratio of the

mean speed to the difference between the maximum and minimum speeds. Thus,

N1 = Maximum equilibrium speed,

N2 = Minimum equilibrium speed, and

N = Mean equilibrium speed =

( )

Sensitiveness of the governor = =

It indicates how much a governor responds to speed fluctuations. It should not be too high and too low; if

so, either it shall not respond to speed fluctuations or it shall not attain equilibrium (causing erratic throttle

opening/closing).

Stability

A governor is said to be stable when for every speed within the working range there is a definite

configuration i.e. there is only one radius of rotation of the governor balls at which the governor is in

equilibrium. For a stable governor, if the equilibrium speed increases, the radius of governor balls must also

increase.

Isochronous Governors

A governor is said to be isochronous when the equilibrium speed is constant (i.e. range of speed is zero)

for all radii of rotation of the balls within the working range, neglecting friction. Isochronism is the stage of

infinite sensitivity for spring controlled governors.

For isochronism, range of speed should be zero i.e. N2 – N1 = 0. Therefore from equations of governor

speed h1 = h2, which is impossible in case of a Porter governor. Hence a Porter governor cannot be

isochronous.

Hunting

Hunting is the name given to a condition in which the speed of the engine controlled by the governor

fluctuates continuously above and below the mean speed. It is caused by a governor which is too sensitive.

It shall, therefore, change supply of fuel to the engine by large amount (either too much or too less).

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

Effort and Power of a Governor

The effort of a governor is the mean force exerted at the sleeve for a given percentage change of speed (or

lift of the sleeve). It may be noted that when the governor is running steadily, there is no force at the sleeve.

But, when the speed changes, there is a resistance at the sleeve which opposes its motion. It is assumed that

this resistance which is equal to the effort varies uniformly from a maximum value to zero while the

governor moves into its new position of equilibrium.

The power of a governor is the work done at the sleeve for a given percentage change of speed. It is the

product of the mean value of the effort and the distance through which the sleeve moves.

i.e., Power = Effort × lift of sleeve

The effort and power of a Porter governor may be determined as discussed below.

Let N = Equilibrium speed corresponding to the configuration as shown in Fig (a),

We have discussed that when the speed is N rpm,the sleeve load is W = M.g. Assuming that the angles ”α”

and ”β “ are equal, so that q = 1, then the height of the governor,

2

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

When the increase of speed takes place, a downward force “P” will have to be exerted on the sleeve in

order to prevent the sleeve from rising. If the speed increases to (1 + c) N rpm and the height (h) of the

governor remains the same, the load on the sleeve increases to M1.g. Therefore

A little consideration will show that (M1 – M)g is the downward force which must be applied in order to

prevent the sleeve from rising as the speed increases. It is the same force which acts on the governor sleeve

immediately after the increase of speed has taken place and before the sleeve begins to move. When the

sleeve takes the new position, as shown in Fig. (b), this force gradually diminishes to zero.

Let

P = Mean force exerted on the sleeve during the increase in speed or Effort of the governor =

( )

=

= ( + )

If “F” is the frictional force (in Newton) at the sleeve, then (USE +F for sleeve rising, and –F for sleeve

falling)

We have already discussed that the power of a governor is the product of the governor effort and the lift of

the sleeve.

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

If the height of the governor at speed N is h and at an increased speed (1 + c) N is h1

s = 2 (h - h1)

As there is no resultant force at the sleeve in the two equilibrium positions, therefore

We know that

Substituting the values of “P” and “s” in equation (5) without friction, we have

When speed increases to (1 + c) N and height of the governor remains the same,

then

The equation (6) for the lift of the sleeve (s) becomes

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

Controlling Force:

When the speed of rotation is uniform, each governor fly-ball is subjected either directly or indirectly to an

inward pull, which is equal and opposite to the outward centrifugal reaction. This inward pull is termed as

controlling force, FC. A curve drawn to show how the pull varies with the radius of rotation of the ball is

called a controlling force curve. Controlling force curve may be straight line in same type of governors.

This curve enables the stability and sensitiveness of the governor to be examined and also shows clearly the

effect of friction. Since controlling force is equal and opposite to centrifugal force, we have

=

=

=

If FC is plotted against “r”, then we get the controlling force curve as below and

φ = inclination to the “r” axis of the line joining a given point on the curve to the origin.

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

Notes :

1. In case the governor satisfies the condition for stability, the angle φ must increase with radius of rotation

of the governor balls. In other words, the equilibrium speed must increase with the increase of radius of

rotation of the governor balls.

2. For the governor to be more sensitive, the change in the value of φ over the change of radius of rotation

should be as small as possible.

3. For the isochronous governor, the controlling force curve is a straight line passing through the origin.

The angle φ will be constant for all values of the radius of rotation of the governor.

For the isochronous governor (F / r = const.) as it is having sensitivity = ∞. So from the definition of

sensitiveness that the change in the value of φ (i.e. F / r ) over the range of radius of rotation should be as

small as possible in order to provide the most sensitive governor. If the controlling force curve is a straight

line, which passes through the origin, the angle φ will be constant for all values of the radius and the

governor will be isochronous. From above,

=

Using this equation, we can calculate “ω” versus “φ” such as following to make the speed scale (ω or N).

Draw “φ” and that gives you the “ω” on RHS as a scale.

ω1 φ1

ω2 φ2

ω3 φ3

……. …..

ωN φN

Lines may be drawn radiating from origin. These lines are not tangents to the curve; in fact they are

intersecting the curve at different points.

7

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

These enable the equilibrium speed to be determined corresponding to a given radius of rotation. The

range of equilibrium speed can be obtained by marking minimum radius (rmin) and maximum radius (rmax)

on the curve and drawing a line from these points to origin to intersect speed scale which will give the

range of equilibrium speed i.e. ωmin and ωmax . The controlling force diagram for the spring controlled

governors is a straight line, as shown in figure below

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

Also we can determine controlling force (FC) which will control the centrifugal force on the ball of

mass (m). By analysis of forces for Porter governor, we have, [NOT CHECKED: CHECK: arms

pivoted on axis of rotation]

How to get the above expressions?(NOT CHECKED: CHECK: the case of arms pivoted on axis of

rotation)

Refer to the FBD of the ball given to you for which you can get the force vector diagram as below:-

GOVERNOR CHARACTERISTICS

Using the above two expressions, we get,

±

= ( + ), with friction

As Controlling force (FC) is numerically equal to centrifugal force (F) and 180o out of phase, controlling

forces are:-

±

= ( + ), with friction
