Hydro-Electric Turbine Generator Drive
Overspeed Protection and Critical Speed Avoidance
The Petrotech integrated Hydro-Electric turbine control system provides cost-effective complete or partial control system retrofits for Hydro-Electric turbine driven generator packages. The control system provides replacement controls for outdated electro-hydraulic and analog electronic controls.
The control system can include turbine and generator sequencing, complete turbine control, load control, DCS interface, and a graphic operator interface for system status, trending, and data logging.
The control package for the Hydro-Electric turbine provides overspeed protection and critical speed avoidance.
A coordinated control strategy for run-of-river hydro-turbine operations requires core components such as:
- Start-Up Demand Control
- Head-Water Process Controller
- Head-Water Anticipation Control
- Capacity Demand Management
- Unit Governor Demand Control
