    Advanced Data Acquisition and Spatial Mapping for Visualizing Rivers and Reservoirs

    Learn innovative and cutting edge techniques for spatially mapping and visulaizing your river or reservoir quickly getting to the real answers you need to make decisions.  Find maxmum stream power for turbine placement, study reservoir depth and volumes for silt accumulation over time,  understand environmental impact for dam placement and visulaize the entire study site with real measured data.  Lastly, when your ready to start a more intensive study and create hydrodynamic models to predict future behavior, use WaterCube to overlay the real spatially measured river data onto an existing model grid to compare and calibrate your hydrodynamic results.  WaterCube allows you to quickly Manage, View and Study your river like never before.

    Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection at Hydroelectric Facilities

    Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure -- such as hydroelectric power facilities and Bulk Electric System facilities -- are a serious concern.

    This whitepaper features several experts covering the topic of cybersecurity at hydropower plants, including the scope of cyber threats, how to react to an incident, and where utilities are investing their resources.

    Preventing Generator Failure with On-line PD Monitoring

    With the increasing age of generator fleets, on-line insulation condition monitoring has become an essential asset management tool. Compared to routine off-line diagnostic tests, on-line monitoring provides asset managers with continuous insulation condition status while generators are in operation. It indicates whenever operational stress factors are damaging electrical insulation and putting generators at risk of failure.   

    In this white paper, you will learn how on-line insulation condition monitoring has significant benefits for your organization. Not only can you optimize maintenance schedules based on actual asset condition, the reliable service life of your aging generators can be maximized to help you get the most out of your investment.

    Reliable Separation of Solids at Small Hydropower Plants with the HOBAS Sand Trap

    Sand traps that remove solids from the river water are essential elements in hydroelectric power systems. HOBAS has developed a particularly effective sand trap made of glass fiber reinforced pipes that separates solids reliably and is custom-tailored to the project requirements to ensure an optimal performance.
