HydroGenerate: Python Tool Estimating Hydropower Generation Time-Series

An open-source Python library for estimating hydropower generation based on flow rate, integrating user inputs or USGS water data.
Technology No. CW-21-57
The HydroGenerate is an open-source python library that has the capability of estimating hydropower generation based on flow rate either provided by the user or received from United States Geological Survey (USGS) water data services. The tool calculates the efficiency as a function of flow based on the turbine type either selected by the user or estimated based on the “head” provided by the user.
