Small Hydro Power Stations

ghv drive technology and energy efficiency in the power of the water efficiency of existing small hydropower energy efficiency of small hydropower plants with frequency converter frequency converter technology from ABB and the advice from ghv Antriebstechnik in Grafing undergone enormous improvements. Many small water turbines have the problem that the used asynchronous generators unlike are hardly variable as the synchronous generators of larger power plants in their performance. As a result, too little water flows the electricity goes down the drain. This means that you must be switched off. Especially in summer months, often no electricity supply can be done.

Here is the ghv drive technology with your knowledge. Actually, we use no really new technology”as Hubert Hausjell, Managing Director and consultant from ghv drive technology. Frequency converter used, are used as you in the electric drive technology for decades. Only the idea is new: to change the speed of the power generator, that also small amounts of water can be exploited and so bring more turbine power. The performance is reduced, but not to zero. The result is amazing. Up to 15 percent more power.

These show trials. In addition to energy efficiency, the use of frequency inverters brings additional benefits and savings of peripheral devices. We accompany you from ghv Antriebstechnik in Grafing near Munich likes, from consulting through to commissioning.
