Application: The Value of CFD Modeling in Designing a Hydro Plant
Posted Wed October 13, 2010 @08:13AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application The use of CFD modeling to design a proposed hydroelectric facility allowed Manitoba Hydro to verify and adjust its physical model. By combining the use of both tools, utility engineers uncovered design changes that can save on construction costs.

In 1911, when Canada's Commission of Conservation first started eyeing the Nelson River as a possible energy source, commission members probably were not thinking about mathematically analyzing flow issues. Since the 1950s, the vision of harnessing this river has become reality through the efforts of Manitoba Hydro, which has built five plants with a total capacity of 3,925 MW along the massive waterway. These plants began operating between 1961 and 1990.
