Monitoring and operational diagnostics in hydro power plants

MOTRHYS combines years of experience in:

  • Hydro mechanic measurement in hydro power equipment
  • Extensive research in the field of signal processing & ultrasonic pipe flow measurement

Based on this experience, MOTRHYS can provide solutions to analyse and diagnose transient or vibrating mechanical loads experienced by all assets of an hydro-power plant and more specifically penstocks.

a) PENSTOCKS: service delivery

  • Temporary pressure monitoring: MOTRHYS organizes during a few months a customized monitoring. All hydraulic pressure transients experienced by the penstock are captured and analyzed. An audit report is provided to the owner including advice to ensure the long-term reliability of the operating. See Penstock pressure fluctuations monitoring for more details.
  • Post failure diagnosis: MOTRHYS carries out desk-review based on technical documents to look for hydraulic causes which have led to damage hydro mechanical equipment: assessment of causes & scenarios.
  • Assistance in special hydromechanical testing: MOTRHYS offers support for the organization of in-situ diagnostic tests on hydro-mechanical equipment: recommendations on the parameters to survey; types of tests to conduct for diagnosing the cause of a problem encountered in operation.

b) PENSTOCKS: HYDROSURGE software for pressure monitoring

  •  MOTRHYS provides softwares for pressure data analysis-oriented real-time and continuous surveillance. This supply includes modules or complete software solution.  See HYDROSURGE for more détails.

c) ULTRASONIC FLOW ANALYSIS- service delivery

  • MOTRHYS provides flow speed profile determination by means of ultrasonic measurement in instationary conditions.

See flow metering for more details.
