Abstract

This paper describes a design technique based on the Z-transform for a real-time speed governor of a steam turbine. The digital speed governing system is designed satisfying main operational requirements including stability and time domain specifications. Its performance is tested by practical application to a scale model of an a.c. generator in the laboratory (micromachine). The real time governor is implemented in software form on a microcomputer.
