Our highly innovative and efficient, hydraulic power unit with a particularly compact design to enter the next-generation of governor systems.
Combining leading-edge technology with concepts that have proven their reliability and performance under all operating conditions over many years.
A well-established, reliable technology
The HyCon GoActuate is our state-of-the-art hydraulic power unit that fits perfectly to your needs in safety and functionality and thus supplies your oil-hydraulic systems in a highly available and reliable way.
It covers the whole spectrum of system pressures that one would find in hydropower plants today. Further, it offers replacement kits for mature low pressure solutions in order to extend the life time of your systems.
In combination with our HyCon GoDigital, Voith combines subject-matter know-how with solid technology to deliver a valuable and powerful core system of your plant.
Low-pressure solutions (up to 63 bars) can be used for all types of turbines. They are a perfect fit for large hydraulic machines but are also an absolutely safe and reliable solution for any kind of hydraulic machine. Voith delivers all components for your customized solution:
- Oil sump tank with pump group
- Main valves for the energy production
- Pressure tank for energy storage
- High-pressure air compressors for air replenishment
- Sensors and actuators
High-pressure solutions (up to 160 bars) can be used for all types of turbines. They are often a cost-effective solution for small and medium sized hydraulic machines. Voith delivers all components for your customized solution:
- Oil sump tank with pump groups
- Main valves for the energy production
- Piston accumulator station with nitrogen filling
- Sensors and actuators
The importance of interfacing the control system to the machine is frequently underestimated. The electro-hydraulic converters to operate the servomotors, which are the main control elements for the hydroelectric power conversion processes, are individually designed for each power unit. Our wealth of experience in hydropower engineering helps us create the required level of reliability and control accuracy. To add matching actuators to the digital governor, we design and deliver all required first class control elements for the turbine control. Voith delivers its own specialized manufactured components for governor controls:
- Control valves up to DN 200
- Moving-coil type servo valves (TSM 6) including quick shutdown device
The advantage of moving-coil type servo valves compared to a standard proportional valve is the up to three times longer life-time.
The next generation hydraulic turbine governor system
The HyCon GoHybrid is a highly innovative and efficient, hydraulic power unit with a particularly compact design to enter the next-generation of governor systems. Standardized components reduce maintenance costs for operators.
The oil system’s reduced complexity lowers the required oil volume by up to 60 percent compared to conventional high-pressure units and by up to more than 90 percent when measured against low-pressure units, thus providing a more environmentally friendly solution. The HyCon GoHybrid is a state-of-the-art concept that goes beyond the common technical specifications and conventional rules.
Advantages at a glance:
- Significant lower oil content
- Lower maintenance costs
- Improved energy efficiency
- Compact and less complex design
- Reduced installation complexity
- Transient simulation of the complete hydraulic system guarantees perfect sizing
We deliver unrivalled fast installation and commissioning
The HyCon GoHybrid reduces the installation complexity. With only a few interfaces the connection to existing digital governor systems is simplified. See for yourself the striking advantage of the installation process in the following:

Fullfill strict grid requirements and ensure high performance
Our HyCon digital turbine governors combine leading-edge technology with concepts that have proven their reliability and performance under all operating conditions over many years. By using the best hardware and software available, this governor offers the highest possible availability. Because of its modular and flexible design, the governor can be customized to satisfy the requirements of every type of turbine, power plant and business model. The HyCon GoDigital is based on Siemens SIMATIC S7 components and supports a wide range of open interfaces including IEC 60870-5-101/103/104 and IEC 61850.
It further includes all control modes required for any type of turbine and allows plant owners to act highly flexible in their markets:
- Speed control
- Opening control (with or without frequency influence)
- Power control (with or without frequency influence)
- Water level control (with or without frequency influence)
- Flow control
- Pump control
