Project detail

Pump as Turbine: improving the design and operation through digitalisation

Duration: 14.09.2022 — 13.09.2026

On the project

Pump-as-turbine (PaT) is favorable option in terms of investment costs for small hydropower plants and is frequently used for pressure energy recovery in water distribution networks or process industry. Proposed project is aiming on building strategies for digitalisation of PaT in its design and operation by employing predictive maintenance approaches, computational fluid dynamics and digital twin.
