  • Summary:
    A Korean SME established in 2010 has specialized in development of technology applicable on small hydropower generator. Torque control hydropower system is completed development to complement for advanced functions. The company is looking for partnership under license agreement and commercial agreement with technical assistance to expand its overseas markets.
  • Description:
    A Korean SME established in 2010 has specialized in hydropower technology applicable on small hydropower generator, and the company would like to expand their business to the international markets with newly added functions of torque control systems. The existing technology lowers the efficiency of power generation, and the grid frequency is separated if the inflow flow fluctuation occurs. The developed technology enables that the system frequency synchronization out-of-sync phenomenon does not occur even if the inflow flow rate change.
    As described above, the technology has a higher generator utilization rate (average 20% or more) than the general hydropower generation system by controlling the torque of a small hydropower generator in response to the flow rate fluctuation without systematic frequency synchronization loss.
    Under license and commercial agreement with technical assistance, the company is seeking for the opportunity to expand their business to overseas markets, especially in the industry of power generation and turbine utilized for hydropower generator.
