WCFD

The program is designed for the calculation of transient processes at HPPs with branched pressure systems, surge tanks and hydroelectric units with Francis turbines.

The program allows you to calculate the pressure systems of HPPs of almost any configuration. It is envisaged that two different types of Francis turbines can operate simultaneously at the HPP. The computer model includes an automatic control system and pressure relief valves.
