In July 2020, the Tonibung team conducted a training for 9 village operators and community members of the Kobulu Micro Hydro Project. Supported by the WISIONS initiative, the training aimed to enhance the operators’ skills on micro hydro load management, using hands-on and do-it-yourself knowledge tools developed for operators and communities.
The objectives of the course included:
- Provide training on how to use the Electronic Load Controller (ELC) Simulation Tool, which simulates how the ELC operates as households use different electrical appliances simultaneously.
- Provide training on how to use the Canary Chic Load Indicator
- Provide training on troubleshooting the ELC
- Provide foundational civil, mechanical, and electrical skills related to micro hydro
