Pumps

Given the critical role pumped hydro storage plays in being a clean, low-cost and renewable energy storage system, is simply maintaining key hydropower equipment (such as Kaplan and Francis turbines) enough? Or, should a more rigorous approach be undertaken to intrinsically ‘improve’ the efficiency at pumped storage hydropower plants for the long term?

The First choice for Energy Management Flow Applications The ability to better monitor combustion air, fuel gas flow and compressed air can help identify losses that over short periods of time can affect a plant’s profitability. The two key phrases when discussing instrumentation for the aforementioned are ‘cost effective’ and ‘return on investment.’ Thermal dispersion […]
