EPS Flow Regulator does not help with power drain from weapon recovery. The way it works now is the drain happens when you fire your weapons and when the firing cycle of the weapons are done your power returns to original levels. You can easily test this by going into some easy scenario fire your weapon and watch ur power levels go back once ur weapons are done firing. Here are the links to reference what I am saying.
"Weapon Energy Drain Mechanic Changes
The weapon energy drain mechanic will be changing once this build goes to Holodeck. Weapon Power drain is now instantly refunded at the end of a weapon’s firing cycle, instead of a slow return as was previously implemented. Multiple weapons being fired at the same time will still produce a significant drain and will affect their damage proportionately, but once the weapons stop firing, the weapon power level will immediately return to normal.
This change was primarily inspired by player feedback - specifically on the topic of the energy drain caused by firing multiple bursts of energy weapons. Players may now fire all of their energy weapons repeatedly burst after burst, but the damage for each weapon is still diminished during the firing cycle.
As a result of this change to the energy drain mechanic, the EPS Flow Regulator Station Mods, will no longer have an effect on DPS. They will continue to function to improve power transfer rates between different systems."
As you can see there is a lot of old information out there and like the poster above me they still believe this console helps their energy drain from firing weapons when it clearly does not and hasn't for over 2 years.
