Design and development of automatic control system of the electric dam for hydropower plant, Duzce, Turkey

The subject of the project is the development of an automatic control system for dam management with the goal to control the water level for the needs of the hydropower plant in Duzce, Turkey. The project includes the preparation of technical documentation, control cabinet automation and software that controls the entire process. Based on adequate sensors, the PLC takes appropriate actions for dam inflation or deflation, with the purpose to maintain predefined values of water levels and pressure in the dam. Through an adequate HMI display, the user is provided with a complete insight into current and previous events in the system as well as the ability to optimize the process through the appropriate screens for setting parameters.
