EP8406 - Frequency and Power Governing of Hydro Power Plants
Lessons are not given in the academic year 2016/2017
The course is given next time Spring2018. The course is presenting the structure matrix method for mathematical modeling of hydro-electric power plants and pump systems connected to complicated pipelines-and/or tunnel systems included valves, accumelators and control systems. The theory are founded on nonlinear friction alleviation of oscillating flow through tunnels and pipelines and the effects of turbines- and pump characteristics in system for turbines and pumped-storage power plants or in pump systems. Frequency response measurement methods to decide the stability are being described. Mathematical modeling of tunnels, pipelines, turbines, water level regulation, generators and electric grid in the frequency domain are being described.
This course will not be held if less than 5 students are signed up.
The course provides the student with knowledge about:
Dimensioning of hydro turbines and conduit systems for stable performance
Methods for simulation of hydro power systems in frequency domain
Pressure response measurements
The course gives the student insight about:
Frequency and power governing of hydro power plants
Dimensioning and simulation of hydro power plants for stable performance
The course should enable the student to:
Use the Matrix Method for modeling hydro power systems
Simulate hydropower plants as regards governing stability
Carry out pressure response measurements
The course should give the student:
Competence regarding frequency and power governing of hydro power plants
