The Ecowatt Hydro IREM hydroelectric turbine, an off-grid installation, powers a minigrid consisting of a hybrid, photovoltaic and hydroelectric system, has the purpose of supplying energy to maintain optimal levels of charge of the storage batteries of the entire system, thus guaranteeing the continuity of electricity supply in all operating conditions, maximizing the performance and useful life of each component of the installation.
The hydroelectric plant with a nominal power of 15kW consists of a Pelton TPS turbine, RMP regulators and a QDT distribution panel.
The innovative “constant load” electronic control of the IREM Ecowatt Hydro stand alone hydroelectric plants guarantees an electrical voltage generated with a perfectly sinusoidal waveform and controlled frequency values with an accuracy of ± 0.4% in all load conditions.
The RMP electronic regulators perform a real-time adjustment of the network frequency, obtaining a perfect balance between the power generated by the hydroelectric turbine and the power used by the plant.
The IREM turbine-panel-regulators system has been designed to achieve the objectives of reliability, simplicity and efficiency.
