Controls and actuation solutions for Francis, Kaplan and Pelton hydro Turbines
Whether you are generating hydroelectric power with a Francis, Kaplan, or Pelton hydro turbine, we have a control solution for you.
Several of Woodward controller lines include hydro turbine controllers exclusively for these hydro turbines with specifically designed algorithms and logic to start, stop, control, and protect hydro turbines.
Hydro Turbine Safety and Protection
Machinery Protection Standard API670 requires compressor safety systems be used on axial compressors and centrifugal compressors based on application criticality. Woodward is a leader in delivering safety systems for industrial turbomachinery that allow users to meet this standard.
Woodward’s SIL-3 certifiable safety systems reduce installation costs and allow users to meet today’s safety system requirements for small, medium, or large compressor applications.
Rotating machinery requires speed sensing for rotor control, monitoring, and safety.
For industrial applications, it is recommended that standard API670 be referenced, as it includes application guidelines for speed sensors applied on rotating machinery, including steam turbines, gas turbines, turbo expanders, and variable-frequency drives. Compliance to functional safety standard IEC61508 is increasingly required in new and retrofit systems.
These speed sensors are designed for use in SIL-3, SIL-2, or SIL-1 (safety integrity level) rated turbine or engine safety systems.
