1.Using the measurements of relevant hydraulic and electrical variables for various loads in the power grid of the hydroelectric power system, determine energy conversion efficiency (hydraulic, electric and total).
2.Determine energy (kWh) that can be generated from the laboratory-scale Pelton turbine, and the revenue it can generate ($/year) for the museum.
