Abstract: The easiest and, in the long run, the least expensive method in most cases is the installation of an electronic turbine governor that is not only easy to incorporate in the power station automatic control but which also simplifies this control since it is nowadays often possible to include such automatic functions as start-up, frequency adaptation and changeover from one mode of operation to another. The governor often also effects the monitoring of the various functions. The use of a modern electronic turbine governor also considerably broadens the possibility of employing a power station, facilitating its optimal utilization either in network operation with water level or power control or in isolated operation.
