We offer solutions for intelligent management systems that increase self-generated usage by about 15%. Using storage systems (batteries) that store and optimize the use of excess energy, when needed, can increase this percentage up to 70%.
■ raise independence from increase of electric energy prices
■ lower electricity bills
■ higher return from photovoltaic plants
Hydroelectric renewable energy source has one characteristic that makes it differ from other renewable sources in that it produces continuous and non-intermittent energy.
The objective of a hydroelectric plant is to exploit energy generated by water flow. Several operations are required in order to transform the potential energy of water into electricity.
The plant must enact automatic management concerning:
Start/stop generator following manual/automatic control, or interaction of the protection barriers automatically activated by PLC;
Automatic PLC regulation of power supply depending upon water supplies in reservoirs or in charge basins upstream of the plant;
Survey of normal running conditions, with prompt automatic PLC indication of faults or failures;
Regulation of power factor, in compliance with mains connection regulations of the chosen distribution operator (ENEL, ENEL Energia etc);
Data capture of all information required for local or remote monitoring of the plant.
Thanks SMI srl, the automation systems allow all information to be viewed on an operating display installed on the control board that interfaces between the operator and the PLC so that the operator can interact with regulations and the main controls. Furthermore, SMI srl offers a remote-control system that acquires data and, following any necessary transformation, sends them to the remote-control station where they are processed so they can be viewed, allowing the operating parameters of the plant to be monitored and adjusted in remote. The only remaining, necessary manual operations are planned and extraordinary maintenance. In this way, use of personnel on site is optimized.
