The GAC electronic actuators for generators are designed to deliver fast, precise throttle control and replaces the engine’s mechanical throttle.
Load response on engines and gensets will improve. This is because actuators react 200 times faster than mechanical throttles.
Fuel economy will also improve because GAC electric actuators are linear actuators; they can move to any position between fully open and fully closed. If you need 50% power, they open the throttle 50%. Mechanical throttles can only be open or closed. This is unnecessary on applications using variable speed such as pumps or compressors. They don’t require full speed at all times.
There are many other benefits in making the switch from mechanical governing to electronic. With electronic governing:
Upgrading from mechanical governing to electronic governing is simple and quick so is ideal for retrofitting. The actuator takes less than 5 minutes to install as there’s no complicated linkages.
This short video shows the speed of changing from a mechanically-governed to electric actuator. It is very quick.
