 I am not aware of a model of a hydro turbine. However, you may still
have some options. First, if the output of the turbine is relatively
constant then you could write an equation or put the performance into a
data file which would then be read in by the simulation. Alternatively,
if the turbine performance can be characterized by a COP as a function
of a few inlet conditions then you could use Type42 to model it. Type42
is a very generic "lookup table / performance map" component that reads
and interpolates performance metrics as a function of inlet conditions. 

Kind regards,

Is there a 'Type' available to be used as a Hydro which could be shared with me?
