HYDROGRID INSIGHT FEATURES

Fully optimize your hydropower plant with HYDROGRID’s intelligent autopilot

INFLOW FORECAST

Our intelligent inflow forecast is based on innovative machine learning algorithms and more than 30 meteorological parameters. This enables us to provide you with the best possible inflow forecast for your individual power plants based on its geo-location.
Depending on the location and available data history, HYDROGRID Insight chooses the best model for each power plant – econometric, neural network, or machine learning – which enables us to proactively steer your power plant and decrease spillage by up to 12%.

PRICE FORECAST

 
Power plant operators that can accurately predict market prices and adjust their power production will earn a higher revenue. Our machine learning algorithms will take this tedious task over and predict the prices for your individual price zone, before adapting the optimal dispatch plan accordingly to maximize your revenues per produced MWh – from futures, to day-ahead, intraday, and ancillary services. No more manual forecasting needed, HYDROGRID Insight is equipped with all the necessary tools to increase your earned revenue per MWh by up to 6%.

OPTIMAL DISPATCH PLAN

 
To ensure the best possible dispatch plan for your individual power plants, HYDROGRID Insight combines state-of-the-art processes and technologies. Based on the individual model of your power plant’s topology and turbines, we provide a fully-automated dispatch solution that works 24/7, without needing any manual input.
 
By including the efficiency curves of your turbines, your power plant will always be dispatched close to your turbines’ best point – for a single turbine or multiple turbines.

MANAGEMENT REPORTING

 
The best results are not enough if they are not well delivered. This is why we have dedicated a feature to this need. With our monthly management reports, you will receive a detailed insight into the performance of each power plant. Depending on the data history and type of plant management, our reports will also include a simulation of how the plant would have been managed without HYDROGRID or how it would have performed in level-regulation mode. We are continuously expanding the content of our reports to provide you with every detail you need.
