Symbol:

The flow rate available to the hydro turbine is the maximum flow rate that could be diverted into the hydro turbine. In each time step, HOMER calculates the available flow rate using the following equation:

equations_Qdot_available

where:


 

 

symbols_Qdot_stream

= the total stream flow [m3/s]

 

symbols_Qdot_residual

= residual flow [m3/s]

HOMER uses the available stream flow to calculate the actual stream flow through the hydro turbine in each time step.
