A centrifugal governor is a specific type of governor with a feedback system that controls the speed of an engine by regulating the flow of fuel or working fluid, so as to maintain a near-constant uses the principle of proportional control.. Centrifugal governors were invented by Christiaan Huygens and used to regulate the distance and pressure between millstones in windmills in the.

One of the few authors to write in any depth on rotary steam engines was the famous Franz Reuleaux, in his book "The Kinematics of Machinery", which was published in English inand is considered the foundation of scientific kinematics.

He deals with many rotary steam engine designs from a strictly theoretical standpoint; the phrase. The early chapters on steam engine basics are also a good reference.
