The maximum flow rate is the maximum allowable flow rate through the hydro turbine. HOMER calculates the maximum flow rate of the hydro turbine using the following equation:

equations_Qdot_max

where:


 

 

wmax

= the hydro turbine's maximum flow ratio [%]

 

symbols_Qdot_design

= the hydro turbine's design flow rate [m3/s]

HOMER uses this value to calculate the hydro turbine flow rate in each time step.
