Hydropower generation control and governing systems

The Ingecon® Sun Hydro can be supplied as a compact unit, incorporating all the functionalities described below, or as independent modules, depending on the hydropower plant size and layout.

This cost-effective equipment minimises the cabling and engineering in order to reduce the total installation cost, whilst incorporating all the functions required to govern and control a hydropower plant.

Component parts:

  • Turbine governor. A digital system to govern the turbine (Francis, Pelton, Kaplan or Bulbo) by specific control algorithms for each governor type (speed, power, level, opening and flow rate).
  • Generator regulator (excitation). Compact equipment for small units or equipment with independent power electronics. A redundant architecture option is available, for control or power stages. Suitable for indirect or direct excitation up to 1.500 A.
  • Automatic synchronisation.
  • Automation and protections: for the generating sets and for the sub-station associated with the power plant.
  • SCADA and remote control: scalable and flexible, thanks to the OPC based client / server architecture (ADSL, RDSI, GSM, GPRS, Internet, fibre optics, radio, microwave, satellite).
  • Remote communications.
  • Remote tripping
  • RS-485 (3964, MODBUS, etc.)
  • CAN.
