Application

Pumped storage power plants store a large amount of energy and feed it into the grid very quickly when necessary. One important parameter is the height of the water level in the reservoir. It allows calculations to be made about the amount of energy available and the existing storage volume in pump operation mode. High reliability is required from the measurement technology deployed, because the sensors are often mounted at very remote locations.

Real application example

In a current project, a natural alpine lake is being expanded and converted into a reservoir. The construction site, located at nearly 2,500 meters above sea level, has to be protected against flooding. To accomplish this, the level of the lake is constantly monitored during filling.
