  Woodward Governor Company has manufactured prime mover controls and accessories since 1870. Installations range from the largest hydroelectric dams to remote diesel powered generation facilities in the Arctic. In September 1992 Woodward achieved ISO 9001 registration, certificate number QSR-36. Woodward has a full line of field proven governors, actuators and controls to meet your needs for prime mover and system control. A wide ranges of specialized products are available for generator control, steam and gas turbines, compressor control, load sharing, synchronizing and systems management.

Examples of some Woodward governor systems are:
The Woodward Peak 150 electronic steam turbine control is field proven, providing major benefits over the old mechanical / hydraulic governors.
This  economical control offers easy set up and tuning, front mounted operator keypad, remote control, Modbus communications capability, and process control. Applications include boiler feed water pumps, amine & sulphonal pumps, induced draft and forced draft fans. The process functions can be incorporated to fluctuate the turbine speed to match the desire pressure required in a system. Thereby reducing pump re-circulation and greatly improving efficiency.

  The Woodward 828 electronic reciprocating engine control expands on the history of the Woodward 700 series and IGEM control. The 828 provides:

    • Start fuel limiting to eliminate over fueling for easy  starting
    • Dual dynamics provide fast engine response to changing loads
    • Smooth ramp controls minimize engine torsional vibration
    • 4-20 mA speed reference input eliminates the need for an I / P and actuator for remote speed control. Providing accurate reliable compressor discharge / suction control
    • A 4-20 mA output is provided for remote speed indication
    • ModBus communications capability

  The Woodward 828 is an expandable system which can incorporate air / fuel ratio control and ignition timing control. The 828 is the most advanced engine control available, experience has proven that mapping the electronic fuel / speed control, air / fuel ratio and ignition timing provides the best match to achieve the highest levels of precision and reliability. Combining these three functions achieves the highest levels of precision and efficiency for your natural gas engines.

Woodward 828 Control

Electronic governors can be applied to any make of prime mover from the smallest pull-start engines to large bore reciprocating engines. Benefits include start fuel limiting to prevent over fuelling, dramatic improvement in speed control, reliability, direct electronic interface to other system controls, and remote control and process control.
