Hydropower and Turbine Selection

A Hydropower App calculates power output and annual energy and suggests the suitable turbine type.User instructions:Input: The net head and nominal discharge both in SI-units m, and m3/s. If just a turbine is considered, the efficiency should be defined as turbine efficiency. The total efficiency of the system (water to wire) should be used in case of energy production consideration.Output of the app are: maximal power output and generated annual energy for defined/assumed number of operational days under full operation conditions. Turbine type is suggested.Note: calculation done for SI-unit system and gravity constant of 9.81.Acknowledgment:All algorithms and background knowledge are provided by M.
