English term or phrase: governor raise/lower control switch and droop speed control
Dealing with Unit operation/gas turbine (gas)
GOVERNOR RAISE/LOWER CONTROL SWITCH (70R4/CS):
Used to control turbine speed when the generator is off the line (i.e. for manual synchronizing); generator load when the generator is on the line; and frequency when the generator is running isolated and on DROOP speed control.

interruttore di controllo del regolatore - aumenta/diminuisci
Explanation:
droop speed = regolazione della velocità

http://www.toromontpowersystems.com/ConsultantsCorner/Engine...
Understanding engine governors
The engine governor controls engine speed, and in some generator applications, generator load. To select correct governors for particular applications, governor capabilities must be understood. The following terms are commonly encountered when describing governors:
Droop, Speed Droop or Regulation are terms used interchangeably to describe the relationship of engine speed change from no load (high idle) to full load (rated) in steady state operation. Expressed as a percentage, droop is calculated as follows:
% Droop = (Speed at no load - Speed at full load) x 100
The graph below illustrates various degrees of droop for both generator and industrial engine applications. Percent droop
remains constant and independent of operator speed change.
