Spring Loaded Centrifugal Governor

Application ID: 12207

A centrifugal governor is used to control the speed of rotating machinery. One of the most common applications is in controlling the RPM of an engine by regulating the fuel supply.

This model illustrates the functioning of a spring loaded centrifugal governor. The dynamics of the governor are analyzed under the influence of a centrifugal force, spring force, and damping force. The sleeve motion is studied for two different rotation speeds. The forces and moments experienced by different joints are also computed.
