Engine automation in general, and the speed governing system in particular, has a direct effect on the control and performance of the engine under various loads. Modern engines are equipped with digital control systems, which provide several advantages over traditional mechanical-hydraulic governors. In order to modernize older engines, Wärtsilä offers a speed governor conversion solution. By replacing the existing governor and control system with the latest design and technology, both marine and power plant installations can benefit economically, as well as environmentally.
Wärtsilä is able to offer a complete package for each engine and installation. It includes everything needed, from the actual cabling to high-level programming of the digital speed/load control system. Whether the engine has a fully mechanical control system, or is equipped with pneumatic controlled governors, it can profit in almost all areas from a new, individually designed Wärtsilä control system.
