Québec generates, transmits and distributes electricity and is currentlyoperating 60 hydroelectric generating stations throughout Quebec and EasternCanada. Occasionally, a station may experience a load rejection, where theload is suddenly removed from the generator, causing a stopped turbine torotate if a downstream safety device, such as a gate or stop logs, is not put inplace. For safety considerations it is important for Hydro

Québec to be able toestimate the hydraulic response in the power plant tailrace in the event of aload rejection.
Traditional methods of determining the hydraulic response involved physicalmonitoring of water levels in the tailrace during a test load rejection. In this study,Hydro

Québec selected MIKE 11 to evaluate the feasibility of using a numericalmodel to estimate the water level response in the tail race due to a typical loadrejection scenario.

CHALLENGE
 
Estimate hydraulic behaviour in a power plant tailrace due to load rejection
 
Reduce costs for load rejection testing
 
SOLUTION
 
Use hydraulic modelling to estimate thehydraulic behaviour of the tailrace due to aload rejection event.
 
VALUE
 
Reduce material and operating costsassociated with physical testing of loadrejection
Gain a better understanding of thehydraulics in the tailrace following a loadrejection
 
Increase worker safety during load rejectionevents
