Electrical and control systems for small hydro power plants
The heart of every modern hydro power plant is a high-performance, automated electrical and control system. Industrilink is offering a standardized electrical and control system for small hydro power plants.
The system is including the required electrical protection and control of the generator as well as phase correction equipment when required.
Based on level measurement at the penstock intake, the turbine power output is dynamically adjusted within preset maximum and minimum limits. There are also two different production modes which are automatically selected by the control system, one for low inflow and one for high inflow. This ensures that the turbine production is optimized during both dry and flood seasons.
Alarm and fault situations are taken care of by the control system, shutting off the water supply and automatically disconnecting the generator from the network.
The control, monitoring and troubleshooting of the hydro power plant via a fixed or mobile telephone connection is available, reducing the day to day supervision to a minimum.
