General Description

The purpose of this application is the study of hydroelectric power plants in the context of micro grids. Hydroelectric power plants have a great capacity to supply energy at certain times of maximum demand due to their rapid response.

Therefore, this application consists of a turbine-generator group whose purpose is to provide energy to the micro grid, making an intelligent energy distribution based on the decisions of the operator (user).

The application includes a network analyzer to measure in real time the energy produced by the hydroelectric power plant. For the control of the turbine-generator group, a digital multifunction controller (AVR and ASC) is included, which will allow an optimal regulation of all its electrical and mechanical parameters. Among many of the parameters, it is possible to control the "set point" of the generator’s active power to automatically control how much active power we want to inject into the micro grid. The multifunction controller is of vital importance, since it is the one in charge of managing the distribution of power between the different generators present in the micro grid.
