Hi all,
I l’m thinking about transplanting a BEW engine
into my old CJ5 Jeep. I know this has been done before
but I’m wondering if it’s possible to govern the engine to a set
speed and maintain it via closed loop control? I’m interested in
the possibility of using the jeep’s rear PTO to drive a generator.
There are a few companies that sell electronic governors that
control throttle actuators but I’m not sure what signal(s) would
need to go to the engine ECM to maintain constant RPM’s
with the throttle by wire system.
Thank you for any input,
