Hydro 2022 will focus on the impact of hydropower worldwide and optimizing its ongoing contribution to progress and development.
We are pleased to contribute two technical presentations to this year's conference programme.
Helmut Jaberg will talk about "Double regulated mixed flow turbine for small hydro applications: design and operational experience".
Using the example of a project, he will show how the hydraulic and mechanical design of a double-regulated diagonal turbine (Deriaz turbine) for a hydro power plant in Austria was successfully implemented within a development period of only 2.5 months.
Furthermore, Christian Bodner deals in his presentation with the optimisation potential and the limitations of cross-flow turbines with their complex 2-phase flow. The study was carried out by means of numerical simulation and extensive verification through numerous experimental investigations and field measurements.
The topic of his presentation: "Optimisation potential of cross-flow-turbines through numerical calculations: Validation through experimental verification".
We invite you to visit us at our exhibition stand no. 054, in Exhibition Area 1. We look forward to inspiring discussions and the personally exchange of experience and knowledge.

France currently has around 25 732 MW of hydro capacity in operation, and a further 822 MW of hydro at various stages of development. Hydro generation was more than 61 TWh in 2021.
The two most important recently completed schemes were the addition of a 240 MW surface powerplant at the 320 MW La Coche pumped-storage scheme in the Isère valley, and the 92 MW Romanche Gavet scheme in the southwest, where six surface plants and five dams have been replaced by one underground powerplant. The country plans to double its renewable energy over the next ten years, with hydro, solar and wind schemes.
