In 1870 Woodward’s founder, Amos Woodward, invented a responsive, no compensating governor for water wheels. Since then, they’ve been leveraging those basic mechanical governor principles into the world’s best mechanical, hydraulic, and electronic governors for engines and steam turbines. Our governors are used worldwide to provide reliable and precise control of speed and output in power generation, marine, pump, compression, and vehicle applications.
The equipment on which Woodward’s products are found is used to extract and distribute fossil fuels, generate, distribute or store electricity, and to convert fuel to work in marine, locomotive, and industrial equipment applications. Woodward also provides global support through an extensive network of AISFs (Authorized Independent Service Facilities) that have been trained by Woodward to support governors in every corner of the world.
Woodward energy segment designs procedures and services systems and products for the management of fuel, air, fluids, gases, electricity, and motion. These products include power converters, actuators, valves, pumps, injectors, solenoids, ignition systems, governors, electronics and devices that measure, communicate and protect low and medium voltage electrical distribution systems. Our products are used in industrial gas turbines, aero-derivative turbines, reciprocating engines, electrical grids, wind turbines and compressors.
