Physical Mechanisms governing Self-Excited Pressure Oscillations in Francis Turbines

Abstract

The importance of renewable energy sources for the electrical power supply has grown rapidly in the past decades. Their often unpredictable nature however poses a threat to the stability of the existing electric grid. Hydroelectric powerplants play an important role in regulating the integration of renewable energy sources into the network by supplying on… (More)
