Optimal design of mini-hydro power plant – simplified model
Your energy technology expert is happy to announce that it has now simplified the calculations leading to the optimal design of a mini-hydro power plant.
The user can optimize the headrace design by varying its slope and configuration (open canal rectangular, open canal trapezoidal, concrete pipe, GRP pipe) and also the penstock diameter (larger/more expenseive and lower head loss/higher energy sales vs smaller/less expensive and higher head/lower energy sales).
