Smart Power Plant Supervisor
The next step is developing an innovative methodology to integrate and fully utilise the demonstrated hydro technologies at new and existing hydropower assets – the Smart Power Plant Supervisor (SPPS).
The SPPS brings the turbine dynamics and conditions knowledge into advanced unit operation, to optimise performance and predictive maintenance.
BEFORE XFLEX HYDRO
Turbine generating units typically have a limited range of operation based on functions that exclude grid needs.
AFTER XFLEX HYDRO
Integrating the SPPS for flexible operations based on a multidimensional analysis that include energy grid needs.
Implement the methodology to integrate:
- model test results in the baseline database
- numerical simulations in the baseline database
- field test results in the baseline database
- state estimator and multidimensional hillchart
- advanced control and forecasting
