Rebalance will be teaming up with the ASME Hydropower Technical Committee to host a Ternary Pump-Storage design contest at Hydrovision 2020 in Minneapolis, MN. For those of you that want to get a jump-start on your designs here is the conceptual design for the test stand that we will be using for the competition:
And here is a video of the prototype test stand in action at the Rebalance laboratory:
We’ll be posting more details on the contest rules and a detailed parts list for the test stand. Rebalance will also post a link to a simple runner design so you can build your own and start thinking beyond the box of conventional hydropower! Start building your teams and stay tuned!
