This hunting is almost always attributed to an engine-dependent forcing function with a frequency which coincides with a drive train natural frequency. The forcing function is proportional to engine-developed torque and operates at a frequency dependent upon camshaft speed. This paper investigates the response of a sensitive speed governor to this disturbance and examines several approaches which result in an attenuation of the amplitude of speed oscillation.
