Hydropower plays an essential role in the modern energy market. It is also going to play critical role in the futuristic market, including the smart grid. Hydropower is one of leading sources of energy used to meet the primary, secondary and territory ancillary services to balance the energy demand. Hydraulic turbine is essential component of a hydro power plant to generate electricity. The turbine includes several components, including rotating and stationary, and the flow field is extremely complex. Over the century turbine and the components designs are constantly improved by dedicated research and development teams across academia and industries through strong collaboration. Hence, the turbines can deliver the best possible performance and services.

Researchers and scientist often come across different challenges, which are related to turbine operation, maintenance and the corresponding flow field. The challenges are unique to the power plant, which require customized approach. The challenges are addressed using different techniques, including laboratory research, field experiments, computational code (one-dimensional) and three-dimensional computational fluid dynamic, multi-physics approach, fluid structure interaction and most recently artificial intelligence and digital twin.

The 31st symposium on hydraulic machinery and systems, widely known as IAHR symposium, provides unique opportunity to the academic and industrial research teams to exchange the stat-of-the-art knowledge and ideas that will help to develop the next-generation of hydropower technology.
