Hydro-electric Generation

Loch Sloy Power StationHydro-electric generation is mostly a mature industry, but the opportunity remains to exploit existing assets in innovative ways and from time to time, new projects are undertaken.

A particular familiarity with hydro-turbine plant arises from research work carried out in conjunction with the then North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board (NSHEB). The focus of the work was the development of innovative hydro-turbine governors and real-time simulation of the dynamic behaviour of the grid system to which the generator is connected.
