Research and Development

High-tech engineering from the home of hydropower

Geppert Hydropower is known for developing and manufacturing high-quality turbines for CO2-neutral, climate-friendly and emission-free energy supply.

Prior to the start of the overall design, the simulation department carries out transient flow analysis to ensure ideal component design. As an integral part of the design process, FEM analysis, fatigue strength analysis and vibration analysis are also carried out.

CFD analysis is performed in order to maximize efficiency. This ensures that penstocks and elements of importance for fluid dynamics are perfectly dimensioned.
