A series of programs is available to evaluate the hydrology, compute the capacity to generate energy, establish unit costs, analyze penstock surge pressures, and simulate ramping rates. User friendly subprograms are provided as tools for the program inputs. The subprograms create screen prompting statements that define, explain, and give the appropriate units for input. The programs are written in BASIC for DOS personal computers. This paper discusses eight computer programs for hydropower feasibility studies, along with example applications.
