From 1900 until 1950, there were a lot of small hydro power plants built in Slovenia. Because of good quality of construction and good maintenance, a lot of them still work today. A long ago, power plant Sava was built and placed on today’s location. This means that in order for Sava to be connected with the present status of electrical production facilities, new technologies need to be installed. There are new technologies that allow remote control of hydro power plants. These technologies allow better efficiency. In case of fault, the response manipulator can easily resolve the error.
The possibilities to improve operation systems of small power plants are endless. Because old technology does not allow the connecting with the modern technology, I decided to explore the possibilities to improve power plant Sava. Results which I expect are increased working reliability, better outcome, lower the cost of maintenance and increase safety of the manipulators.
