Micro Hydro Control & Automation

Anybody operating a hydro plant is confronted with several challanges to insure that the plant operates safely at peak efficency

  • Over Speed Shutdown,If the generator becomes unloaded it could overspeed and self distruct. 
  • Load Regulation, it's important to maintain a constant load on the generator to ensure voltage dosn't rise exessively as load fluxuates
  • Load Control, for small hydro plants it's important that loads are priortized, you just don't want your hot water heater running while your trying to cook your dinner. Unless you want to crash your computer and spend all day cooking lunch! 
  • Monitoring, it's nice to know that your low power is due to low pressure and not your generator suffering from a core melt down. Log and graph your voltage, amperage, power factor, rpm, pressure and more! 
  • Power Factor Control, depending on how stable your want your power you may consider switching capacitors online to regulate your power factor. 
  • Energiziation, if your cold starting your generator, it might need a few volts in its windings to help it energize.
