Title: Generating unit with engine speed control device

Abstract: The invention relates to a generating unit driven by a combustion engine.Control of the engine speed is carried out in a known manner via amechanical control device which controls a throttle valve in thecarburetor system of the engine. In case of a failure of the mechanicalcontrol device and, consequently, in case of a change in the engine speedoutside a predetermined range, an electronic control system takes over toactivate a firing element of the engine and control the engine speed,independently from the mechanical control system, in such a way that theengine speed is maintained within the predetermined range.
