Abstract

Water-hammer calculations were made for the three penstocks of the Owens Gorge Power Plants to determine proper governor and relief-valve time settings. Test results show good agreement with the calculations. Computing methods, complete test results, and an analysis of these results are included in this paper. A brief discussion of the operation of the surge chambers for these plants is also included.
