Improved Governor Response at the Dinorwig Power Station

06 December 2016 by

Dinorwig Power Station, located in North Wales, UK is one of the largest Pumped Storage facilities in Europe and has the capacity to generate electricity with six (6) 300MW pump generator units. These units make a significant contribution to ensuring the day-to-day stability of the UK, which relies on the Dinorwig Powerhouse to deliver rapid, consistent response. Upgrading the digital governor controls on Unit #1 resulted in reliable, accurate and faster response to a range of frequency excursions. This paper provides an insight to this achievement, which has re-enforced Dinorwig as one of the leading Pumped Storage plants in the World.
