Diagnostic Report

The Index Test Box (ITB) was developed at Woodward Governor Company in 1984 as a dual-purpose test instrument; the primary function is Kaplan turbine optimization to tune-up the 3-D cam surface profile. Secondary, but equal in import is the diagnostic analysis of the turbine control system behavior. 

A third function for Condition Monitoring has recently been added to enhance the ITB’s utility value.
