UG Universal Governors

Mechanical-hydraulic governors for dependable control of engines or steam turbines

Woodward’s UG “universal” governors are mechanical-hydraulic governors for controlling diesel, gas, or dual fuel engines, or steam turbines. This proven design has been an industry standard for many years and worldwide acceptance provides easy service in most engine and governor shops.

UG governors have their own self-contained oil supply and are driven by a suitable UG drive from an engine or turbine. They operate either isochronously or in droop, and have a wide variety of optional features for use in generator, pump, marine propulsion, and other applications. UG governors have a maximum drive speed of 1500 to 1600 rpm.
