This paper analyzes the behavior of the speed sensing element of a power-system speed governor.The system is represented by a second order differential equation, which is programmed into an analog and a digital computer.In the absence of practical data, arbitrary values are selected for the parameters of the speed sensing mechanism.By subjecting the governor to a step and truncated ramp changes in system speed, the computer results show the effect of damping upon the speed sensing element sleeve displacement and its displacement speed as well as the time involved in reaching a steady state point of operation.
