Mains Protection for a Hydroelectric Power Plant

Small hydro power plant connected to the grid.

Situation

Small to medium hydro power plants are now increasingly common across Europe with the principal purpose of generating electricity directly back to the grid to cover demand peaks. These systems benefit from ComAp controllers providing full protection for generators operating parallel-to-mains.

ComAp Solution

As the installed capacity of decentralized sources of energy continues to increase, the distribution system can become less stable resulting in destabilizing of grid parameters such as voltage or frequency. Mains protections are essential to ensure the safe operation of the grid.
