▣ Description
DGC-2007 Governor controller unit is an electronic device designed to control Engine speed with fast and precise
response to transient load changes which is based on PID algorithm. The device is composed of a Main Controller with
the function of single operation (Isochronous mode) and parallel operation (Droop mode), and with an Auxiliary Controller
enabling the emergency operation in case of malfunction of the main controller.

▣ Mounting & Warning

 Mount the controller unit vertically to the surface of a control cabinet, protected from the weather and high
humidity, and do not expose the controller unit to the source of radiant heat.
 Do not rely exclusively on the governor system electric actuator to prevent overspeed. A secondary shutoff device,
such as a fuel solenoid must be used.

 EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility)

To satisfy EMC requirements, the controller unit should be mounted on the grounded metal side, and it is required to
use shielded wires for all signal lines and ground all the shields to one of the bolts used to mount the controller.

▣ External Wiring

 Wiring to the speed control unit should be as shown in 『Fig. 2.』.

 All the cables should be 0.75㎟ or larger and it is recommended to use shielded cables for all external
 Other shielded cables not described in 『Fig. 2』should be grounded to the frame.
① It is recommended to use thick and twisted cables for actuator connections.
The normal reading of resistance between terminals A & B is 3.5Ω~4.5Ω.
② Magnetic speed sensor connections to terminals C and D must be shielded for their entire length.
The speed sensor cable shield should only be connected to terminal D.
The shield should be insulated to insure no other part of the shield comes in contact with engine ground.
otherwise stray speed signals may be introduced to the speed control unit resulting in instability, etc.
③ Be cautious that the Battery’s polarity to terminal E & F should not be interchanged, and a 10 amp fuse
must be Installed between Battery (+) and terminal F. after the wiring work, check the voltage
between terminals which should be 24VDC (±4VDC). and ground the terminal E to the frame. (wiring ⑩)
④ As illustrated in 『Fig.2.』, connecting the optional 5㏀ resistance enables fine adjustment of engine speed
within the range of preset speed ± 210Hz range.
⑤ In case of 12V system, or of actuator with current consumption over 5 amp or above, connect terminals
between G & H.
⑥ Selector switch, switching over "IDLE mode" and "RUN mode".
ON(CLOSE) : idle mode OFF(OPEN) : run rated mode
⑦ "DROOP" mode selector switch.
ON(CLOSE) : DROOP mode OFF(OPEN) : Isochronous mode
⑧ The signal from Auxiliary device for parallel Operation System should be connected to terminal N.
It is necessary to use the shielded cable for the signal.
⑨ The +10[V] & 20[mA] of current supply, Terminal P, Can be untilled to provide power to governor
system accessory.
<CAUTION> Wrong or erroneous wiring & Battery Voltage can cause the fatal damage to the controller.

▶ Magnetic speed sensor connections

 With the Engine stopped, adjust the gap between the magnetic speed sensor and the ring gear teeth.
The gap should not be any smaller than 0.45mm. usually, backing out the speed sensor by 3/4 turn after
touching the ring gear teeth will achieve a satisfactory air gap.
 The signal from the speed sensor can be measured between Terminals C & D in engine operation.
 Controller can control the engine with signal as low as VAC 1.5 or around, but it’s more reliable to get the signal
VAC 3 or above.

▣ Remote speed adjustment

As illustrated in 『Fig.3.』, a remote speed adjustment potentiometer can be used to adjust the engine speed
over specific speed range. Select the desired speed range and the corresponding potentiometer value
(Refer to table 1.)
When the minimum speed setting is used in remote adjustment mode, the speed drop phenomenon may occur
due to instability and load in the system. to maintain engine stability at the minimum speed setting above,
a small amount of droop can be added by turn ⓖDroop counterclockwise.
on the other hand, at the maximum speed setting, the governor performance will be near Isochronous regardless
of the droop adjustment setting.

▣ DROOP Parallel Operation mode (Manual paralleling)

 Definition: Engine speed on the decrease against Engine load on the increase.

 Description : Droop is typically used for the load sharing and paralleling of engine driven generators.
without the Droop mode in Paralleling system, generators can be overloaded or motorized.

 Application : For DROOP Operation,

1. Close DROOP selector switch between K-L terminals.
2. When in droop operation, the Engine speed will decrease as Engine load increase.
The percentage of droop governing can be varied with ⓖDroop Potentiometer.
The higher level of droop is achieved as turning ⓖDroop clockwise.

 Droop level requirements above 10% are unusual. and the minimum droop level to keep the stability of
speed droop governor is 2.5% or above. After the droop level has been adjusted, the rated engine speed setting
may need to be reset. Check the engine speed and adjust the speed setting accordingly.

▣ Accessory Input (automatic paralleling)

The Auxiliary terminal N accepts input signals from load sharing units, auto synchronizers, and other governor system
accessories. It is recommended that this connection from accessories be shielded as it is a sensitive input terminal.
When an accessory is connected to Terminal N, the speed will decrease and the speed adjustment must be reset.
When operating in the upper end of the control unit frequency range, a jumper wire or frequency trim control may be
required between Terminals G and J. This increases the frequency range of the speed control to over 7000Hz.

▣Auxiliary Controller Operation(Emergency Operation) & TEST

4. Release the button ②[Em.Test], and the engine will be stopped.
5. Move [Em.SW] to OFF position to go back to Main controller mode.

▣ Auxiliary Controller mode

1. Cut off jumper wires of CB1 & CB2 respectively.

2. Move [Em.SW] to ON position.
3. Start up the Engine.
4. Check the engine speed and reset it if necessary.

▣ Auxiliary Controller mode characteristics & cautions

1. In Auxiliary Control mode, the Engine speed will decrease as Engine load increase and it is necessary to keep the
percentage of load within 30%~50% of the rated load (it depends on engine output).
2. It is recommend to use auxiliary control mode only in case there is no replacement controller available.
3. After cutting off jumper wires of CB1 and CB2, it is not possible to use the controller in "Main controller mode"
Therefore, it is recommended to keep the button ②[Em.Test] pressed for test purpose only.
4. When the engine will not start in Auxiliary Controller mode, turn ①[EM.Speed] fully counterclockwise(full CCW)
and reverse it clockwise by 15~16 turns, which restores the controller to the factory set condition and make any of
engine model start up.
5. In case PCB patterns connected to the Terminal array are seized due to over current in main controller mode, be
aware that the operation in auxiliary controller mode is not possible either.

▶ Slow instability
Slow instability can have many causes, most of which are due to improper setting against the Engine
characteristics. Adjustment of ⓒGain & ⓑStability usually cures most situations.
(refer to chapter ▣ Adjustments - Page.2)

▶ If the troubleshooting above is not successful,

- Due to the controller at fault -> Replace the controller with new one.
- Due to the external devices at fault (Actuator, fuel injection device, turbine, etc) rectify the mechanical devices.

▣ System inoperative
If the Engine governing system does not function, the fault may be determined by performing the voltage tests
described in Steps 1, 2, and 3. (+) and (-) refer to meter polarity. If normal values should be indicated as a result
of following the trouble shooting steps, the fault may be with the actuator or the wiring to the actuator. therefore,
check the Actuator.
