Universal Governor Apparatus.
The set up consists of a small electric motor connected bevel
reduction gear box or belt and pulley system through a flexible
coupling. The Governor spindle is driven by a solid coupling connected
to the gear box output shaft and is supported on ball bearing. The
optional governor mechanism can be mounted on spindle. Speed control
unit is provided to regulate speed and extension to the spindle shaft
can be sued to use hand tachometer. The center sleeve to the porter and
proell governors incorporates a weight sleeve to which weights are
added. The Hartnell Governor can be operated as a stable or unstable
Governor. The following range of experiments can be
a) The effect of varying mass of the center sleeve.
b) The effect of varying the rotating mass.
c) Determination of characteristic curves of sleeve position against speed of rotation.
d) The effect of varying the initial spring compression. sd
