Utilization factor and demand. The utilization factor (m) is the factor that relates the time in which the energy delivered by the central mini used, demand factor associated with the power demand placed centrally mini, to obtain acceptable values have to deal These factors tend to load factor. Equation 2.12 Calculation of average power. Utilization factor: Equation 2.13 Calculation of utilization factor. 2.7 Sizing Ingredient. For the calculation of plant components is necessary to have data like inícialestales design flow and jump height, with these data we can calculate the power that can be generated with flow conditions and geodesic curve. 2.8 turbines. 2.8.1 Criteria for the choice of turbine. Water turbines must be selected based on the following parameters: The waterfall (geodesic curve). The flow rate. Rotation speed. Cavitation problems.

Runaway speed. Cost. Important parameters have to consider: To select the turbine model there is no well defined using this model should be analyzed in particular given according to the manufacturer's specifications. Banki turbine, or also called cross-flow is specified in the same range of operation of the Francis turbine. Has a yield of 70% less than the Francis and can be used in a sector falls and flow quite broad.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
