This paper covers the latest applications of an electric hydraulic governor control for industrial-commercial gas turbine use. Gas turbines are now being used for mechanical loads, electrical power generation, and ship propulsion. Many of these applications require some degree of automatic operation and operation with other types of prime movers. The electric governor has aided this new concept in gas turbine application. Several typical installations are discussed, including both industrial and commercial use.
