Marketing Text There is an ever increasing emphasis in renewable energy sources in power production. One of the oldest and most extensively used ones is the hydropower. A typical hydro power plant is a complex feature of engineering that has to be precisely controlled and synchronized with the power grid voltage and frequency. Hydro power plants are commonly located in remote areas all over the world. The training on hydropower plant is usually limited to individual systems and cannot be observed as whole. Therefor we designed small scale model of hydro power plant which is accessible to students or trainees from different fields of vocational education. The device can give trainee possibility to see actually operation of the hydro power plant and its operation without disturbing the power grid and travel to remote are.
Description Hydro power plant simulator is a small scale model of the actual hydro power plant with horizontal Pelton turbine. The turbine is controlled by a modern digital turbine governor with AUTO/MANUAL operation. It is an effective didactic tool for practical work for the power station operators, programmers, maintenance personal, measuring crews, university students and secondary vocational students.
Target group trainees, teachers, power station operators, programmers, maintenance personal, measuring crews, university students and secondary vocational students
Result Small scale model of the hydro power plant with one nozzle horizontally aligned Pelton turbine.
Area of application Vocational education, University education, Hydro power engineering, Programming
