Simulation and training system for the Lower Neckar

Securing knowledge - passing on knowledge - simulation for the hydropower plants

Simulation and training system for the Lower Neckar

As a new approach to securing and passing on knowledge, EnBW AG commissioned the development of a pilot system for a simulation and training system for hydropower plants on the lower Neckar.

The simulation system was created for the approximately 55 km long section of the Neckar from Guttenbach to Schwabenheim. There are seven power plants and six lock systems in this section. In the simulation system, the operation of turbines and weir systems can be played interactively for any hydrological scenario.

The use of the simulation system for education and training makes it possible to gather experience within a very short time, which - because the corresponding events are very rare - can only be gathered over many years without simulation.
