VEO’s hybrid turbine governor, the VEO-eHPG, is a pioneering innovation merging hydropower with energy storage technology.
By genuinely integrating energy-storage solutions with the frequency reserve regulation of hydropower turbines, the VEO-eHPG allows for enhanced grid frequency support and significantly prolongs the turbine’s service life.
The VEO-eHPG’s dynamic regulation optimises and minimises the need for mechanical regulation of the hydropower turbine, resulting in reduced wear and maintenance costs.
“VEO has been a very active contributor in developing the new technical requirements and their expertise on hydropower has been very valuable to us. New solutions such as the hybrid turbine governor are essential in ensuring a stable electricity system as the power system goes through the largest transition so far.”
“By combining the strengths of hydropower and energy storage systems utilising VEO’s solution, we aim to ensure that our role as a key source of low-emission and renewable balancing power is maintained and strengthened”
“An energy storage system utilising VEO’s hybrid turbine governor enhances the adjustability of the power plant and reduces wear and tear on the machinery.”
