Le logiciel Peach, un outil de valorisation des petits aménagements hydroélectriques
Peach software, a tool for small hydropower sites valorization
I.S.L., Bureau d'Ingénieurs Conseil
PEACH software, developped by ISL in collaboration with ADEME and ESHA within the frame of ALTENER program, is dedicated to preliminary studies of hydropower sites. PEACH covers all technical engineering methods usually used at these preliminary stages; it also deals with economic and financial analysis of hydropower schemes:
- hydraulic structures design, choice and selection of electromechanical equipment suiting natural conditions,
- economical and financial feasability analysis.
A software general overview is presented hereafter, which insists on two features: project design methodology with PEACH and engineering methods used by the software.
