Class103_DescriptionThis class will give you the opportunity to learn more about the digital 723PLUS controls in association with the DSLC and MSLC. These are configurable control prime movers. Both the hardware and software will be covered in class. During the course, programming / monitoring with Woodward Watch Window will be done and a closed loop simulation will be available. Note: you will need to bring your own PC installed with Watch Window and ServLink.


Class103_2_DescriptionUpon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a strong foundation on governor control theory
    pertaining to the 723 Plus and DSLC/MSLC family of controls.
  • Field calibrate the controls and adjust actuators, linkage and
  • Demonstrate an understanding of power management issues such as; soft loading and unloading, base loading, peak shaving, import/export control, and power transfer.
  • Describe the concepts of basic adjustments, paralleling, and droop.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of theory, methods of synchronizing, and paralleling of electrical generators.
