The trend toward full shipboard automation and the favorable experience with current pneumatic equipment for remote control has brought about the development of a new control system for marine diesel engines. The controls are pneumatic in order to take advantage of the flexibility of this type of system. A standard pneumatic maneuvering stand can be placed at any desired location in the engine room, and may be connected directly to the control devices on the engine. This new control system has a higher speed range and pneumatic speed setting than previous systems. The fuel pump control linkage has also been improved and is now lighter and balanced, with an added safety feature included. This article describes the features and operations of the governor which are part of the new control system.
