STE Energy’s conference about the island mode operation of multiple speed hydro generators

HYDRO 2012 gathered the worldwide hydroelectric power community, involving about 80 countries, in order to discuss the potential and future development plans linked to large and small hydropower projects.

S.T.E. Energy has been invited to present the results of its work, with reference to an innovative control strategy for variable speed hydro generators working in islanded mode.

The main aim of this project is to offer a reliable and environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional diesel generators for the electrification of remote areas, where the electrical grid is weak or nonexistent.
