Abstract The numerical and experimental investigation of the transient phenomena in hydroelectric power plants (HPPs) during offdesign operating conditions is presented in this paper. Modeling of pipes, valves, surge tanks, Francis turbine and its draft tube based on onedimensional approach is performed. Numerical simulation of transient phenomena is performed for different configuration of hydroelectric power plant at off-design conditions such as load rejection/emergency shut-down. Also, analysis of transient phenomena, such as increase of the rotational speed (runaway) of the units, increase of the pressure (head) in the hydraulic system (water hammer) and turbine draft tube pressure pulsations is calculated. Finally, numerical model of hydroelectric power plant, validated with existing measurements data, is used for investigation of influential criteria on HPP’s guaranteed control values (allowed values of runaway, water hammer and minimum closing time of the guide vanes). Key words: hydroelectric power plant, offdesign, transient phenomena, runaway, water hammer, numerical simulation. I.
