The Difference Between Isochronous and Droop Control Modes

The main difference between droop and isochronous control modes lies in their relationship to frequency. In isochronous mode, generators maintain a constant frequency, whereas droop mode allows for changes in frequency in response to changes in load. This guide explains the implications of these differences and applications of the two

Turbomachinery Control Solutions: Building an Effective TCS

A mechanical engineering term, “turbomachinery” describes machines that transfer energy between a rotor and a liquid or gas. Turbines and compressors both fall into this category. Turbines use a fast flow of water, air, or gas to generate shaft power; while compressors pressurize substances by transferring energy from the rotor
