In each time step, HOMER calculates the electrical power output of the Hydro turbine using the following equation:

equations_P_hyd

where:




Phyd

= power output of the hydro turbine [kW]


ηhyd

= hydro turbine efficiency [%]


ρwater

= density of water [1000 kg/m3]


g

= acceleration due to gravity [9.81 m/s2]


hnet

= effective head [m]


symbols_Qdot_turbine

= hydro turbine flow rate [m3/s]
