How does a pneumatic governor work?
Considering this, what is a pneumatic governor?
A pneumatic governor for a fuel injection pump of an internal combustion engine comprises a housing containing five chambers in a row with a plurality of diaphragms separating the chambers from each other. The fourth chamber communicates with the intake manifold of the engine.
- Mechanical or centrifugal governor.
- Pneumatic governor.
- Hydraulic governor.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you adjust the governor?
To adjust the governor, you would loosen the screw on the bottom of the governor arm and push the governor arm so the throttle is wide open. Then you would turn the bottom "clip" (which is connected to the governor shaft) counter clockwise. This will set the governor shaft on top of the governor spool.
A centrifugal governor is a specific type of governor with a feedback system that controls the speed of an engine by regulating the flow of fuel or working fluid, so as to maintain a near-constant speed. It uses the principle of proportional control.
