Hydro Electric Power Commissioning

Turbine TestingGenerator TestingStep-up TransformerA number of systems have been tested, modified and commissioned. Common problems are improper electrical sizing of cables and other electrical components causing overheating. Without a full load test it is unproven whether the system can deliver the maximum design power. If the full load test is successful, the owner can be rest assured that the system is fully functional and safely able to run at full power.

Turbine

The turbine is tested and checked, including water flow, turbine speeds, hydraulic power as well as the proper functioning of mechanical components such as bearings, seals etc.

Generator

Voltage stability, maximum power generation, operating temperature are checked.

Governing & Load Control

The system response to changing power demands is checked. Turbine Performance Charts
