Session 5: Hydro in a Power System

Jul 10, 2023

Learn the nuts and bolts of hydropower production as compared to other types of generation, including steam (nuclear and fossil), combustion turbine, and wind. Explore how to:

  • Optimize the use of generation sources to meet normal system requirements
  • Take advantage of the capability of hydro units during abnormal system operations (including black start and under- and over-frequency capabilities)
  • Adjust for changes to operating patterns brought about by the integration of non-traditional power sources
