Boysen Reservoir Pump Storage Facility
The purpose of this project was to fulfill the design criteria for the CE 4900 Senior Design in Water Resources class at the University of Wyoming. The assigned project was to design a renewable energy pumped-storage facility that includes a hydroelectric dam to create green electricity by emptying an upper reservoir into a lower reservoir. During the early hours of morning when the energy consumption is low, as shown in Figure 1, the upper reservoir will be pumped full from the lower reservoir, using energy that is not being used and cannot be stored efficiently. The main idea of this project ...
