CONTROLS

Everything for the safe and needs-based operation of your hydroelectric power station.

POWER NEEDS CONTROL

Hydropower only becomes really efficient and reliable when the materials, the mechanics and the control technology work together perfectly. Whether it is the control and protection technology of the power station or real-time monitoring via smartphone and a tablet, regardless the location: With All-in-one solutions from WKV, you have technology and profits safely under control.

SET THE TASK - WE WILL CONTROL IT!

  • With electrical actuators, hydraulic units or mechanical systems, we control turbines and valves in a way that achieves the highest performance.
  • Speed control only for synchronisation or for the premier class of full island systems, we have the best solution for every case. The analogue control system, which has been optimised over decades, has already proven itself in the most complex control cases. The PLC-based digital speed control, on the other hand, is a lean and efficient solution for simple applications.
  • Different hydroelectric power stations require different control options. Among other things, we do:
    • Water level control
    • Power control
    • Voltage and Reactive power control
    • Automated surge operation
    • And much more...

WKV HYDRAULIC UNITS FOR SPEED CONTROL AND GRID-PARALLEL OPERATION

  • Hydraulic units for the entire range of control tasks, from simple positioners for parallel operation to complex systems for systems in island and parallel operation
  • Designed for decades of continuous operation - only the best components are used
  • Low-pressure hydraulics – resulting in an extremely long lifespan
  • Energy-saving design
  • On-going diminishment of intensive maintenance on the accumulators
  • WKV AG manufactures the complete range of control technology in-house — an advantage for you!

AUTOMATIC CONTROL WITH ITS OWN SCADA PROGRAMS

  • Individual control and regulation concepts for efficiency-optimised operation of the power station
  • Time-controlled or water-level-dependent power output control
  • Grid dependent control (Smart Grid/Grid Code)
  • Standard interfaces to the network operator

VISUALIZATION AND REMOTE ACCESS

  • Customisable intuitive user interfaces
  • Operation of the power station via touchscreen or mouse clicking
  • Recording of historical data for error analysis
  • Long-term recording of important data for displaying the power-station history
  • Remote access via computer, tablet and smartphone
  • Alerting via SMS or e-mail
  • Remote maintenance and diagnostics

WKV Web-app

Device-independent web application (WebApp) for quick and easy access to current and historical data of your power station via smartphone, tablet or desktop computer:

  • Most important current values
  • History charts
  • Error-message history
  • Download historical data
