The Hydrokinetic tab in the Simulation Results window contains the following output variables.

Variable

Description

Total rated capacity

The nominal power output of the Hydrokinetic Component, in kW

Mean Output

The average power output of the Hydrokinetic Component over the year, in kW

Capacity Factor

The average power output of the Hydrokinetic Component divided by its nominal capacity

Total production

The total number of kWh produced by the Hydrokinetic Component over the year.

Minimum Output

The minimum power output of the Hydrokinetic Component over the year, in kW

Maximum Output

The maximum power output of the Hydrokinetic Component over the year, in kW

Hydrokinetic Penetration

The average power output of the Hydrokinetic Component divided by the average primary load

Hours of Operation

The number of hours of the year during which the hydro turbine output was greater than zero

Levelized Cost

The total annual production of the Hydrokinetic Component divided by its annualized cost.

In the bottom half of the page a DMap shows the power output of the Hydrokinetic Component in each time step of the year.
