Water’s potential energy stored behind a dam in a reservoir has been used very effectively for many decades for a spin water turbine that activates a generator to produce electricity. In this chapter we will apply the first law of thermodynamics for open systems, mostly identified as the modified Bernoulli equation, to sensitivities of design parameters for a water turbine system shown in Figure 12.1.
