In a context of an increasing part of the intermittent renewable sources of energy in the electrical power systems, the HPP have a major role to play in providing reserves because of their flexibility. Concerning the frequency control, the structure and parameter settings of turbine governing systems need to be adapted to the new requirements of the NCs; this can be possible with the help of recent developments in the digital control systems and numerical simulation techniques.
