Technology through innovative solutions

  DEIF invests heavily in research and development globally, to provide state-of-the-art technology that meets customers’ needs and stay at the forefront of technological innovation. The expertise and vision of our designers and their partnership with different fields of power control equipment such as Marine, Steam, Gas and Diesel; allows us to consistently offer cutting-edge technology to our customers in Hydroelectricity generation sector as well.

Tailor-made solutions for specific requirements

  Every project is different in terms of challenges and requirements. Local conditions or budget limitations are also determining factors for hydropower projects. DEIF offers integrated and cost-efficient solutions of different scope according to customer-specific requirements and capabilities. In the development process, our goal is to maximize efficiency by customising our solutions to reach the best possible solution for each client, thus gearing up the customer’s profit to a higher level.

Hydro turbine generator control

  A customised solution, DEIF’s integrated hydro turbine generator control solutions economizes installation costs significantly by using fewer components and lesser wiring compared to systems that require multiple units to provide synchronisation, protection and PLC functionality.

  Delomatic 4 (DM-4) Hydro-controlled plants offer fully automated control for stable optimised operation and require less maintenance and fewer man-hours. The Delomatic 4 Hydro is compatible with all types of turbines and flexible and easy to adapt with simple parameter settings. Critical functions such as speed governing, generator protections and synchronising are fully integrated with password-protected features for maximum security.

  The controller’s Human Machine Interface (HMI) is easy to operate. Based on the graphic screens embedded in the DM-4 Hydro unit itself, the screens are uploaded to a PC like any other interactive webpage graphics using USB or TCP/IP communication, enabling simple password-protected remote control and monitoring.

  The advantages to DEIF’s Delomatic solution go beyond savings, wiring, construction, engineering and maintenance. It is also a flexible solution equally suited for new installations and retrofits, designed to control hydro turbine generators ranging from 2 kW to 20MW along with its auxiliary equipment.
