2 hydropower plants, with 4 generators each

Renewal of the electrical and instrumentation technology for two hydropower plants, with four double-regulated Kaplan turbines and flow control systems each.

Control system:

  • 4 x SIMATIC S7-1500
    • Machine control systems each with an integrated turbine controller
  • 1 x SIMATIC S7-1500
    • for general control purposes
    • for regulating the flow rates

Operating and monitoring system:

  • Intouch:
    • 2 x redundant Intouch stations for local operation and monitoring in the power plant in automatic and manual modes, as well as for recording the measurement data
  • Siemens:
    • 1 x Mobiles Touch Panel

Bus systems:

  • Industrial Ethernet:
    • In optical redundant ring
    • Communication between the SIMATIC S7 controllers and with the operating and monitoring system

Noteworthy aspects:

  • Generator protection
  • Excitation
  • KIMA Turbine Controller (KTC)
