In this paper a fast terminal sliding mode control (FTSMC) is used for speed control of Kaplan hydroturbine governing system in the presence of load torque disturbance. The stability of the proposed controller is proved with the lyapunov function method.The results indicate that the proposed terminal sliding mode controllers not only have a faster response and allows to carry out high performances as well in precision as in finite time of convergence. Moreover, the comparisons of the dynamic
