Hydropower is the most widely-used renewable source of energy and plays a major role in electricity generation in some regions. Yokogawa supplies control and instrumentation products and solutions for hydropower plants around the world.
Reliably performing remote monitoring and control of two or more hydropower plants located far apart
Yokogawa installs remote I/O modules and utilizes a fiber optic redundant ring topology to ensure reliable communications between the integrated production control system and field devices.
STARDOM Network-based Control System
Dual redundant and low-power configurations are available for the STARDOM hybrid PLC/intelligent RTU. STARDOM supports HART, Modbus, FOUNDATION™ fieldbus, and other network protocols.
FA-M3 Range-free Multi-controller
A high-performance programmable logic controller (PLC) that combines very high processing speeds with stable control features. It can be utilized to monitor and control the operation of individual wind turbines.
The FAST/TOOLS package optimizes performance for renewable energy applications. It ensures high availability and performance and supports online configuration.
CENTUM VP Integrated Production Control System
The CENTUM VP integrated control system secures interruption-free “uptime only” plant performance for optimal productivity and profitability in the renewable energy field.
- Yokogawa supplied control, monitoring, and protection systems for plant modernization.
- Fine engineering and Yokogawa's products made successful operation without any problem or shutdown.
Kind of. Calibration itself will not extend the life of a sensor, however, a sensor that is not calibrated properly can cause unreliable measurements - that are often misdiagnosed leading to unnecessary replacements.
Optimizing the maintenance cycle is not always straightforward. In some cases, cleaning once a week is sufficient and other processes may require every 8 hours.
Select the correct pH glass and reference type to improve your pH sensor lifetime and you can limit or even eliminate the effects of temperature and pressure on especially the reference sensor.
Learning these four lessons will help you improve your engineering skills and most importantly extend the life of your pH sensors.
The lifetime of a pH sensor has a significant impact on the overall annual costs of a pH measuring loop. Optimizing four key factors will decrease these costs and optimize process control and overall plant efficiency.
