Mathematical Model of Hydraulic Transients in HE Rijeka

Abstract

Hydraulic transients can be a harrowing experience to the operator of a hydraulic system. Accordingly, the dynamic response of an automatic or regulated fluid conveyance can be the key to a successful complex engineering scheme. The classical mathematical model describing hydraulic transients is the Allievi model. Furthermore, since hydraulic transients can be described by the hyperbolic conservation laws, the implementation of high order accurate numerical scheme arises. Modeling of hydraulic transients in hydroelectric power plant Rijeka using high order finite volume WENO scheme is presented using software STRAN developed by the authors.
