Principle and operation

The hydroelectric power station is a installation that creates electricity using the force of water. This is called hydraulic energy. The hydroelectric power station is made up of 3 main parts: the dam, the power station and the transformer.

The hydraulic dam is the key element in the operation of a hydroelectric power station. It is he who will command and direct the water in order to produce electricity. Settled at the level of a river or a natural watercourse, it can take several names. The dam may be "over the water," indicating that it is not holding water. It can be "locked", in this case the water supply results from the rising tides. And finally, when it retains water, it is called a "retention dam". The latter is the most competitive, as it offers the opportunity to produce large amounts of electricity. It is built in strategic places to constitute a reservoir. The water stored in this lake will be poured into penstocks and led to the hydroelectric plant.

The hydroelectric power station is placed below the dam. The force of the falling water will thus activate the turbine, which will then operate the alternator. The latter will then produce an alternating current which will be sent to the electric transformer of the hydroelectric power station. The power of the hydropower plant is fundamentally derived from the force of the water. Thus, run-of-river dams, relying on sea currents, will produce less electrical power than retention dams.

The transformer is the last key element in making hydroelectricity. This will amplify the voltage of the current that the alternator creates. This electricity will then be carried by the high and very high voltage lines.

The water that has been brought to the turbine is discharged to the river or stream through the tailrace channel.

Computer for hydroelectric power plants: development of intelligent hydroelectric solutions

Vision

Energy, industrial and marine companies are researching actively renewable, low carbon sources of energy. Our wish is to support access to these renewable energies. How? 'Or' What ? By deploying hybrid and microgrid solutions, which optimize energy and storage efficiency.

Mission

We assemble intelligent instrumentation and automation systems for a cleaner world in the sectors of energy, industry and marine. Since 1959, we assemble products innovative and tailor-made tools: intelligent sensors, monitoring systems advanced and automation. All these services are dedicated to energy, industry and the marine industry.

Values

Our virtues are those that direct our operations and improve our business. United, all employees who constitute our teams support our values ​​ and work ardently to promote them.

In addition to this, we educate our employees about the use of energy resources and limit use of & # 039; water, energy or even paper (recycling, communications, ...).

Energy and education are the guidelines of CSR policy. CMR is committed to develop its own environmental and social project activities. All collaborators are committed in this challenge CSR.

CMR examines every year its carbon footprint in order to reduce it. Actions to increase the transport of raw materials and finished products are at the center of its concerns.

CMR examines the life cycle of its products as well as the constitution of raw materials to optimize waste recycling. The R & amp; D department concentrates its efforts on the integration of sustainable development at all levels of society.

Use case

Energy and education are the guidelines of CSR policy. CMR is committed to deploy its own environmental and social project activities. All employees are involved in this challenge CSR.

CMR analyzes every year its carbon footprint in order to decrease it. Actions to perfect the transport of raw materials and finished products are at the heart of its concerns.

Solar

We realize and deliver turnkey solar or hybrid power plants for micro-grid, industrial or grid-connected installations.

La solution HYDROS deployed by CMR makes it possible to hybridize diesel generator installations with solar production and possibly storage.

The conversion of thermal power plants into hybrid plants provides many benefits to the customers of these facilities:

  • »Significant reduction in use of fuels
  • »Strong decrease in CO2 emissions
  • »Gain in competitiveness on the price of the electricity produced
  • » decrease in maintenance tariffs.

Our HYLIOS solution is fundamentally dedicated for emerging countries strongly dependent on thermal production, but unveiling significant solar potential.

The difficulty of hybrid thermal power plants consists in the dimensioning of the equipment of the thermal part, the storage, and in the piloting. The goal is to ensure a continuous supply of electricity to customers.

Our HYLIOS solution is equipped with an energy flow management and control system, making it possible to meet the consumption of energy needs. This solution is available for autonomous and nomadic mini-power plants but also for large hybrid ground installations.

Our energy management system offers many features for:

  • » optimize electrical efficiency
  • »Decrease the consumption of fuels
  • ' maximize self-consumption
