INCREASING POWER OUTPUT AND FLEXIBILITY OF KOPS I HIGH HEAD POWER PLANT WITH THE HELP OF WATERHAMMER SIMULATIONS

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

With highly volatile loads in electric grids from renewables like wind and solar grid service tasks become more and more important. A chance to increase the annual turnover of a storage hydro power plant is found not only in increasing the power output but also the availability and flexibility of an existing power plant. With the help of modern techniques in waterhammer simulations in combination with sophisticated numerical models for complex hydro power plant components an increase of power output and flexibility at the same time could be identified.
