permanent magnet generator and is applied to the EG-M
control box. The control box compares this voltage with
a reference voltage. If there is a difference, it supplies
art output voltage that energizes the EG-R hydraulic
actuator. A pilot valve plunger in the actuator directs oil
from a remote servo. This increases or decreases the
steam that returns the turbine speed to normal.
The load signal box detects changes in load before
they appear as speed changes. It detects these changes
through the resistor box that develops a voltage from the
compared with the generator load output voltage. If a
difference exists, the load signal box applies a
proportional voltage to the control box.
The droop switch allows parallel operation of prime
