How can hydroelectric power stations be adapted to the requirements of the power grids of the future which will incorporate a large share of intermittent renewable energy sources? The Laboratoire des écoulements géophysiques et industriels or LEGI (a geophysical and industrial flows laboratory) at the Grenoble INP engineering school has developed a turbulence simulation code (YALES2HYDRO) which will be used by General Electric to design next-generation hydroelectric turbines as part of an industrial chair called “New developments in hydroelectric turbines based on the use of a new simulation tool” (NETHUNS).
