Hydroelectric energy is a renewable energy source dependent upon the hydrologic cycle of water, which involves evaporation, precipitation and the flow of water due to gravity. Hydroelectric power generation industry, due to its non-polluting process with no heat or noxious gases released, has a significant need to grow across global.
The key advantage of the GE Intelligent Platforms offer is the ability to provide one-stop shopping. Our total solution including controls-PLC/PAC, SCADA, Plant Applications-Proficy Historian, and Portal give manufacturers full visibility to the real-time operating performance and readiness to both opportunities and challenges.
GE Intelligent Platform's revolutionary Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) solutions combine unprecedented flexibility, openness and performance. A single control engine and universal programming create a seamless migration path and deliver a true convergence of control choices. GE Intelligent Platforms’s hydropower turbine solutions made of PAC controllers are designed to gain advanced control and minimize cost. It helps reduce downtime, support capacity, improve efficiency, and provide a view into the system as a whole.
Event data collection is crucial in safety and critical control applications. GE Intelligent Platforms’ SOE solutions can capture both the first event and sequence of events that occur in your system during a shutdown or a trip sequence to help you document when events have occurred. Providing accurate detection, recording and storing of events and leveraging highly accurate time stamps, our SOE solutions enable you to analyze when change of states occurred in your process and the precise order of occurrence, down to the millisecond.
