Cavitation is the sudden formation and collapse of low-pressure bubbles in liquids by means of mechanical forces. This process can cause damage to turbines under certain operating conditions.
This category depends on selecting the Unit Power Table method (see Unit Power Table) and includes methods for dealing with the problem of cavitation on turbines.
* None
This is the default, no action method.
* Unit Head and Tailwater Based Regions
This method allows the user to specify the regions of operation in which cavitation does not occur, so these regions can be avoided. These regions can depend on both operating head and tailwater.
See Unit-level Constraints for descriptions of added constraints.
