Governors And Controls

Governor systems are typically speed-sensitive control systems. The turbine speed is controlled by varying the steam flow through the turbine by positioning the governor valve. Variations in the power required by the pump and changes in steam inlet or exhaust conditions alter the speed of the turbine, causing the governor system to respond to correct the operating speed.

Control systems, unlike governor systems, are not directly speed-sensitive but respond to changes in pump or pump-system pressures and then reposition the turbine "governor" valve to maintain the preset pressure. Consequently, changes in turbine steam conditions or in the power required by the pump result in a repositioning of the turbine governor
