Tools and technologies for next-generation hydropower
The Biological Performance Assessment (BioPA) tool relates computational models of hydraulic conditions to known effects to fish to inform the design and operation of hydropower turbines.
The Hydropower Biological Evaluation Toolset (HBET) analyzes hydraulic conditions and offers measurable estimates of the physical stressors fish may experience at hydropower dams.
The Sensor Fish is a small, cylindrical tube that contains a variety of sensors. This can be used on-site to measure the hydraulic conditions that fish might experience during passage.
