9.18.19 WIC/DOE’s Hydropower Webinar Series: Low-Head Hydropower Turbine and Generator System Prototype

September 18th - September 18th


NHA members, the Waterpower Innovation Council has joined with the DOE in presenting the Department of Energy’s Hydropower R&D Highlights Webinar Series. Our next webinar presents Rapidly Deployable, Advanced, Integrated Low-Head Hydropower Turbine and Generator System Prototype with Arnie Fontaine of Pennsylvania State University on Wednesday, September 18th, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

In summary, Mr. Fontaine will present on the development and demonstration of a low-head hydropower turbine and generator system prototype that combines lightweight, corrosion-resistant metallic components that can be produced through an additive manufacturing process integrated with a health monitoring system and condition-based maintenance. This system will help to identify maintenance needs and facilitate improved operation.

Please be sure to join us in viewing this informative presentation!

Note: This webinar series is only available to NHA members. Information to access the webinar is mailed to NHA members. If you did not receive an email containing instructions for accessing the webinar, please contact at Luciana@hydro.org.
