Principle and operation

The hydroelectric power station is a facility 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. Established 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 located 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 create 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 produces. 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.

Hydroelectric power stations: creation of intelligent hydroelectric solutions

Vision

Energy, industrial and marine players are researching actively renewable, low carbon sources of energy. Our will is to enable access to these renewable energies. How? 'Or' What ? By advancing hybrid and microgrid solutions, which improve energy and storage efficiency.

Mission

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

Values

Our values ​​ are those that guide our operations and advance our business. United, all employees who form our teams defend our values ​​ and work ardently to promote them.

In addition , we educate our employees about the consumption 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 employees are committed in this challenge CSR.

CMR compares 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.

CMR analyzes the life cycle of its products as well as the composition of raw materials to perfect waste recycling. The R & amp; D department centralizes its efforts on the integration of sustainable development at all levels of the company .

Use case

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

CMR compares 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 create and deliver turnkey solar or hybrid power plants for micro-grid, industrial or grid-connected installations.

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

The rehabilitation of thermal power plants into hybrid plants brings many benefits to the customers of these facilities:

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

Our HYLIOS solution is particularly intended for emerging countries strongly dependent on thermal production, but presenting significant solar potential.

The difficulty of hybrid thermal power plants resides 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 use of energy needs. This solution is accessible for autonomous and nomadic mini-power plants but also for large hybrid ground installations.

Our energy management system offers many features for:

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