This paper describes a new power plant regulating system which incorporates speed and load control, recognizes the ability of the engine, permits maximum utilization of the engine's power, and protects the engine from harmful overloads. The ability of the regulator to schedule permissible engine fuel as a function of engine speed allows it to be used with the latest type engines employing supercharger. The system permits remote and multiple-unit operation and provides a high degree of plant protection against damage because of failures.
