Digital Controller for a Turbine and Alternator
A control scheme utilizing an on-line minicomputer which assumes complete control of a generating unit is described in this paper. The basic design incorporates a minicomputer and interface signal transducers, and a teletype unit to perform in real-time the tasks of voltage regulation and speed control. The proposed scheme has been tested on a laboratory scale model of a generating unit. Results from tests of voltage, load and speed control are described in the paper.
