A digital Governor (GOV) has been developed for being used for a Francis hydro turbine, and the validity of the GOV has been tested. As for the hardware system for the GOV, we purchased a basic digital control system that already had proven its reliability in the power industry. We developed a set of new GOV software and integrated it with the hardware system, and finally verified the performance of the whole GOV system. For the human-machine interface (HMI), we configured and implemented appropriate graphic interfaces for the turbine operations. This paper describes the major GOV control functions, approaches we took in developing the GOV control logics, and the validity tests and the results.
