Video about Hydropower object available from now

RS MINERVE contains different hydrological models for rainfall-runoff, such as GSM, SOCONT, SAC-SMA, GR4J and HBV. The combination of hydraulic structure models (reservoirs, turbines, spillways,…) can also reproduce complex hydropower schemes. In addition, a hydropower model computes the net height and the linear pressure losses, providing energy production values and total income based on the turbine performance and on the sale price of energy.

Basic instructions for using the Hydropower objects in RS MINERVE are presented in youtube.

More tutorial videos in the Hydro10 YouTube Channel.

DATASETS FROM CSV FORMAT

Did you know that you can directly import and export CSV files from an RS MINERVE database?

The current version of the software includes CSV compatibility allowing the importation and exportation of CSV files. This format is common and fast to prepare and/or modify with programs such as Microsoft Excel or LibreOffice.

As shown in the image below, CSV importation and exportation are really simple. Do you want to try it? (click on the image to enlarge it)
