Low Head Hydro Turbines
* Are there any opportunities in the Central Valley Project for capturing additional energy through the implementation of state-of-the-art low-head hydroelectric technologies?
Need and Benefit
The aim of this Science and Technology (S&T) Program research project is to increase generation capabilities within the Central Valley Project by applying low-head hydroelectric technology to features of the project where the hydraulic energy has not yet been captured. The scope of the feasibility study would include places where a hydraulic drop occurs, using low-head hydro technology and canal turbine technology.
