Power Generation Optimization (PGO) is a “SCADA” solution developed by FLOVEL to control the machines, which helps to increase the overall efficiency of the power plant. Major function of PGO is served to monitor the plant statics from remote station (PGO Desk). It also includes plant online data monitoring with trends & historian functions. Further, optimization of power generation in hydro plants is carried out via PGO regulation. PGO solution is used for monitoring of power plant generation and peak operation without operator interference. Loss of generation due to human error will be nullified with software control regulation. Unit operation sequence shall be controlled on the basis of time & water availability via PGO. This system runs on standard Personal Computers, using Microsoft’s latest operating system.
Currently the cost of conventional SCADA solutions are fairly high for small hydro plants, where PGO serves the purpose of SCADA as well as provide various inbuilt features like Historian, Data Logging, Monitoring, Trends, Email Reporting, SMS Service, Chatbot and Virtual monitoring.
