Accurate turbine speed control under rapidly changing operating conditions is the cornerstone upon which we build our control systems for compressor, pump, and turbo-expander applications. High level accuracy is also realized across the compressor’s performance control, anti-surge protection, and quench control algorithms.
Woodward understands the unique requirements in applying turbomachinery to applications within the process industry. As an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of equipment and control software used across the process industry, our governor controls, actuators, valves, and protection devices provide leading edge performance control, reliability, and safety to meet the plant productivity requirements.
Our advanced industrial engine control systems optimize emissions, efficiency, reliability, and performance. This capability comes from decades of experience managing and controlling engines used to drive pumps, compressors, and electrical generators.
Woodward continues to improve and innovate our controllers, actuators, and valves used on steam and gas turbines, compressors, and turbo-expanders used throughout the oil and gas market. Increased system reliability allows processes and plants to benefit from fewer system shutdowns, while increased accuracy and responsiveness results in smoother process control and improved end-product quality.
Woodward power generation controls meet the diverse needs of the on-site power generation industry—from base load or process control, to emergency power or communications-intensive distributed power generation and protection applications.
