mobile phone connection
Most power houses for the hydro power system are located away from residential buildings, often at quite a distance.
In case of thunder storm, the operator will often want to shut down the system in order to prevent lighting damage to the system and to users. This can be done remotely via SMS.
The system can also be started remotely again, if the water flow is equipped with a powered valve.
The controller can send alerts via SMS if operating parameters are going out of range, if there is a dump load fault or if one of the power supplies or a fan has failed.
You can also query the current state of the system, e.g. how much capacity is still left.
Data communication can also be realised via ethernet or wireless network.
