PREDICTIVE CONTROL OF HYDRO POWER STATIONS
HydroControl is a predictive controller that enables the optimal management of storage, pumped storage and run-off-river hydro power stations. Weather data, price trends, operational and other boundary conditions are constantly monitored and integrated into the optimization. Via an interface to the control system, measurement data is collected and optimal control inputs are transferred. All relevant data are at the disposal of the plant operator at any time in a clearly structured manner.
HydroControl enables short and long-term planning of power plants. The holistic multilevel optimization allows the management of both the energy market and the market for ancillary services.
REDUCE COSTS AND MAXIMIZE INCOME
HydroControl allows the operation of hydropower plants with minimal losses. In addition to cost reduction, HydroControl also increases income. Short-term external influences that have a major impact on electricity prices occur increasingly frequent. With short reaction times and rapid adaptation of production, additional profits can be generated.
The use of Misurio software offers new opportunities for the management of multiple powerplants, such as pooling or opening up new markets. Extended services improve competitiveness and lead to increased revenues.
