Explain the following terms of centrifugal governor with neat sketch:
(i)Height of Governor
Terms related with Governor:
(i) Height of Governor:
It is the vertical distance from the centre of the ball to a point where the axes of the arms (or
arms produced) intersect on the spindle axis. It is usually denoted by h as shown in figure.
(ii) Equilibrium Speed:
It is the speed at which the governor balls, arms etc. are in complete equilibrium & the sleeve
does not tend to move upwards or downwards.
iii) Sleeve Lift:
It is the vertical distance which the sleeve travels due to change in equilibrium speed.
