English term or phrase: exit head losses
The available flows for diversion through the Beck system model the actual flow rates through the tunnels, canals and turbines and will depend on the hydrodynamic conditions in the system at any instant. Power potential and subsequently energy production for a hydroelectric development are directly related to the net head experienced by each station. With respect to the Beck complex the net head at each station is the elevation difference between the intake canal forebay level and the tail water (lower Niagara River) level, less any water passage and exit head losses. Existing power tunnels and canals convey power flows to the complex from the Grass Island Pool (GIP) upstream of the International Control Structure (ICS) to the power canals feeding the forebay. The existing Beck complex was modeled to establish baseline data for the power and energy study for Beck 3.
