The project’s objective is to assess EE improvement in selected EÜAŞ (Government’s Energy Production Company) Hydro Power Plants (HPP) via measuring and evaluation time-dependent performance deteriorations of turbines and HPP’s primary/auxiliary equipment and to define the scope of necessary rehabilitation works within a feasibility study including cost estimates.
The project provides data about the detailed condition of the equipment, real performance of the HPP units and opportunities for both efficiency improvement and capacity increase with a view to optimize plant operation. Based on the provided data MENR/EÜAŞ will develop rehabilitation projects if considered feasible. Efficiency improvement will allow EÜAŞ to decrease specific water consumption (amount of water used for generating 1 kWh) and to conduct a reliable and optimized operation.
The project covers to perform energy efficiency analysis for hydro power plants (HPP). Turbine efficiency measurement system to be installed within this scope is expected to be a supplementary system for HPPs management to collect, store, illustrate and report noteworthy energy efficiency data and information prior to rehabilitation decision. The turbine efficiency measurement system shall run independent from HPPs control systems and should not intervene in power plant’s control system.
The final product of the project is the feasibility reports (with cost effectiveness, project schedule, and estimated total cost, preferably with alternative options to offer an economic comparison) defining the scope of rehabilitation works for optimizing operations and efficiency of selected HPPs.
