    Abstract : The phenomenon of global warming has become a fact, however; the uncertainty is about the magnitude and acceleration of its manifestations. Global mean sea level rise is one of the results induced by global warming and is happening with an undetectable accelerated pace. READ MORE

  3. 13. Analysis of uncertainties in fatigue load assessment : a study on one Kaplan hydro turbine during start operation

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Annica Gustafsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydropower; Hydro turbine runner; Uncertainty analysis; Fatigue load; Fatigue damage; Propagation of uncertainty.; Vattenkraft; Löphjul; Osäkerhetsanalys; Utmattning; Delskada; Fortplantning av osäkeheter.;

    Abstract : In the future, hydropower plants are expected to operate more flexibly. This will lead to a more varied operation of the turbine and the generator, such as more start and stop in order to stabilise the frequency in the grid. Studies show that these transient operations are more costly in terms of fatigue degradation, i.e. READ MORE
