Iranian Engineers Produce Power Plant Governors

Sunday, June 8, 2008

Deputy director of Power Research Institute for research affairs announced that researchers of the institute have achieved the technical know-how for digital control of turbines and power generators at power plants.

He added that the technical know-how will be shared with manufacturing companies in order to mass produce the system.

Farrokh Amini also noted that governors are devices which keep speed of a turbine’s revolution and that of generators at a fixed level through changing voltages and are used in gas-powered, steam-powered, and hydropower turbines.

“In old power plants, mechanical systems were used, but scientific advances have caused mechanical governors to be replaced with digital ones,” he said.

Deputy director of Power Research Institute for research affairs added that researchers of the institute have mastered the technical knowledge needed for manufacturing digital governors, noting that the new system is more advantageous than the old, mechanical one because it allows engineers to control the system using computer software.

Amini added that the main goal of the institute is to localize and develop the technical know-how related to power industry and commercialize research results through sharing that know-how with the private sector.

“The Power Research Institute has, thus far, mastered 30 instances of technical know-how related to power industry and in 15 instances mass production of the relevant equipment has been started,” he said.
