A governor is a piece of equipment that regulates the load in an engine or a turbine and maintains its constant speed, given that if the load is increased, the engine speed will change as well. However, the governor will alter the fuel flow in order to maintain a constant speed of the engine or a turbine. The same goes for decreasing the load, meaning that if the load becomes lighter, generator speed will abruptly increase. However, the governor decreases the flow of fuel or steam until the speed is normalized and reverted to the set parameters.
