The liberalization of the electricity market enforces the use of more productive and energy efficient technologies. Hence, the revitalization of some parts of the equipment in the existing power systems was required. Such a need is imposed on hydro-turbine speed governors. Governor play an important role in hydraulic turbine. It maintains the stability of the system frequency by controlling the speed of the system. The paper analyzes the standard control algorithm for turbine governors, the PID controller. The fundamental basics of PID controllers are illustrated, methods of tuning are considered in order to demonstrate the adaptation of these devices to the system, but also their limitations are highlighted. Finally, alternative control systems are also considered.
