It doesn't work as it used to. Energy Drain is from weapon power is "refunded" when the weapons firing cycle ends. This makes EPS FLow Regulators less important for damage overall.
I still find them useful to recover from Full Impulse, Beam Overloads and power switching.
If you intend to use Beam Overload, you should definitely try it out. If you rely more on DHCs and Torps, you can probably go without them.
