Surge Tank Design for Storage-Tunnels

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Water conveyance tunnels may be used to provide additional storage volume to hydro power plants by utilizing these as storage tunnels. To allow flexible and safe operation a special storage-tunnel surge tank design is proposed to allow both an operation for pressurized and free surface flow regimes. The storage-tunnel surge tank utilizes a low positioned and slightly inclined lower chamber additionally providing a high oscillation stability criterion.
