Hydropower load rejection modelling in Canada

Hydro-Québec saves money and reduces risks by modelling the hydraulic impacts of load rejections

Occasionally, a station may experience a load rejection, where the load is suddenly removed from the generator. Hydro-Québec selected MIKE 11 to evaluate the feasibility of using a numerical model to estimate the water level response in the tail race due to a typical load rejection scenario.
