HYDROELECTRIC PLANTS COURSE

Taking into account the great development of this form of generation, throughout the course one analyses the operating principles, the various classifications of plants, deepen on the essential elements such as the civil work, the generator or the auxiliary systems. Also, the different types of turbines and the selection criteria are studied deeply. 

It is course perfect for knowing every substantial aspect of hydroelectric energy from the point of view of the study of viability, design and operation and maintenance of the plants.
