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!
The WKV smart-automation system.
WKVmaster allows you to monitor, control and ANALYSE your hydropower station – from anywhere and at all times.
Device-independent access – from anywhere and at all times. Inside the powerhouse via industrial Wi-Fi and outside via your internet connection.
All your hydropower stations can be centrally and location-independent controlled by the device of your choice.
You decide when and by whom can your system be accessed.
Protecting your station from any system breach is a top priority. In case of problems, we support you remotely with a secure VPN connection via WKVconnector.
Clearly structured views provide real-time data and analyses. Together with the control buttons and the setpoints, they form the human-machine interface.
Intuitive system operation via touch panel, your own mobile device or your computer – the responsive-designed WKVmaster automatically adapts to your terminal!
A well-arranged chart view is used to display, analyse and export all historically recorded data. This allows a thorough examination of the past events in a user-friendly and simple way.
Acquire automatically customised reports with important data and analyses of interest to you and your stakeholders by simply pressing a button.
With our active error-messaging system, you will keep your downtime as short as possible.
An email-service together with push notifications ensure that errors are detected immediately.
The integrated Cause-and-Remedy feature facilitates significantly the troubleshooting.
Analyse & history
All alarms and events are historically recorded. A function to add comments helps to keep all involved persons informed about recent incidents.
Fully automatic control of the water levels, power, frequency and excitation.
Efficiency-optimised and component-caring for many years of operation.
A real hot-standby redundancy prevents data loss and ensures continuous operation of the station, even in case of system failure.
The integrated automation plan controls the generating unit according to your generation schedule. The maintenance schedule reminds you of all service and maintenance works to be performed.
We can flexibly adapt our system according to your needs and wishes.
Multilingual-customised for you.
Communication interfaces to the power-grid company, to your remote control room or a third-party are adapted to the needs of our customers in close exchange. WVKmaster supports all common protocols.
