Conventional governors of water-turbine-generator sets can be set up to provide either stability when supplying an isolated load or rapid response when connected to a large, predominantly thermal, system. In the paper, an adaptive microprocessor-based governor is described which goes some way to satisfying both requirements. Results are given for tests on a 32.5 MW turbine generator.
