Hydroelectric Power

Hydroelectric generation, one of the oldest and most reliable sources of electricity, continues to make technological improvements today. Whether you are working with a brand new installation or operating an aging facility, using the right technology correctly is key to maximizing profitability.

Common electrical challenges at a hydroelectric power generating facility:

  • Old or obsolete equipment in need of replacement.
  • Service and support for a control systems when the original vendor is long gone.
  • Changing environmental rules requiring complex flow ramping controls.
  • Integration of numerous equipment vendors into a single working system.
  • Complex generator protection relays.
