Abstract :

Our theoretical interpretation of the rack and pinion speed controlling governor was inspired by the basic â�?�?Cork Openerâ�? used to open wine bottles. Our objective is to design a cheaper and efficient speed governor, to promote its use in the general public, to help in declination of high speed vehicle mishaps and to protect the environment from pollution by burning lesser amount of fuel. The gear controlled speed governor employs the rack and pinion mechanism in a way that is similar to the way it is used in a wing bottle opener but with reversed operation; the worm is modified into a cylindrical shaft that has teeth on the outer surface, it is placed centrally and is free from any rotational motion, the body consists of the housing which supports the two pinion gears on either side of the modified worm, the housing too is modified to monolithically hold a bevel gear at the bottom, the housing is in free rotation during operation owing to the rotation of the bevel gear which is connected to the rotating member of the engine or turbine. The pinion gears are in a perfect state of mesh with the modified cylindrical rack and are also connected to the arm or levers, the levers on either side hold the rotating mass (or balls) used to put inertial force in action. The cylindrical rack is extended beyond the housing on both sides; either side are held by a bush, the bottom side is extended further to be just above a spring rocker arm, similar to the one used for valve control in automobile engines and it is connected to the fuel supply throttle via a lever.
