Abstract : The velocity sensor and regulator of this invention includes a fluid amplifier and a sensing means having an element which provides a signal which is indicative of the angular velocity of a driven element, such as a turbine, pneumatic transmission line for passing the signal and means for applying the signal as a control signal to the fluid amplifier. The fluid amplifier, in turn, is effective to adjust the angular velocity of the turbine in response to the signal received.
