    Default Electronic governor

    Has anyone ever retrofitted a Bobcat 250 with an electronic speed governor? There's nothing wrong with the mechanical one on there, I was just curious what it took to do it. I have another small genset (3500W) that has governor issues and was thinking about gutting the mechanicals on it and building up an electronic system. If I could get it to work, I may want to do it to the BC as well. I know it would take some sort of proximity sensor circuit on the rotating assembly and a servo drive for the throttle. The only thing I can think of to control it would be a programmable logic controller of some type. If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear em.

    The main reason I'm even thinking about this is to get better frequency stability on the aux power, since it also backs up the house during storm season...SSS
