A plasma flow regulator or an EPS flow regulator or simply flow regulator was a component used to regulate the flow of plasma in the electro-plasma system of a starship or a starbase.

An EPS flow regulator was one of the components in the prototype system for metaphasic shielding, a form of subspace shielding technology based on metaphasic fields, invented by Dr. Reyga, a Ferengi scientist, in 2369. (TNG: "Suspicions")

The power conduits of the Cardassian-designed starbase Deep Space 9 had one flow regulator per level. Chief Miles O'Brien suggested an automatic realignment of such a regulator as a possible cause of Ensign Aquino's death in 2369. (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")

In late 2375, the plasma flow regulators of the USS Defiant, formerly the USS Sao Paulo, were recalibrated by O'Brien's engineering team. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")
