Abstract:

The potential for increasing power output both through physical improvements in generating equipment and by changes in the manner that existing projects are operated were investigated and estimates of power increase prepared. The investigation was nationwide in scope, including Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. All existing hydroelectric plants, regardless of ownership, were investigated for improvement in power output. The potential is identified by the type of improvement and is reported as aggregate regional values and national summaries.
