Abstract

The article reviews the issues related to the increase of annual energy production of the run-of-the-river hydropower plant (HPP) without increasing the HPP annual design flow. The turbine type selection approach, that is different from a traditional one and that ensures maximum efficient use of the hydropower plant’s available water resources, is provided. The results of simulation of the HPP average daily energy production and the software, specially developed for this purpose, are also given.
