RegulatiNG a Hydroelectric Power Plant

Hydroelectric plants produce electricity on a continuous basis, but can also adapt very quickly to energy consumption needs. To achieve these rapid adaptations, the turbines need to be properly regulated, as they are designed to function at a nominal level with very little variation.

The RC-HYDRO project aims to develop a tool to digitally simulate the operation of turbines and hydroelectric power plants in order to regulate them based on energy requirements.

SEGULA Technologies has been engaged in modelling the actual operation of hydroelectric plants in order to determine the regulation parameters (flow, speed, power, etc.) for different types of turbines. The proposed models are correlated with experimental data.
