In this article a fuzzy logic turbine governor is designed and simulated for the control of a hydraulic turbine, together with its penstock, based on a nonlinear turbine model. The designed fuzzy logic governor can be used in hydropower plants, and may replace the commonly used classical PID turbine governors that are causing instability problems.
