Conclusions

  1. 1.

    It is necessary to perform systematic work to improve the qualifications of operating and repair personnel at hydroelectric plants.

     
  2. 2.

    The most critical repair work should be performed with the participation of specialists from the manufacturing plants.

     
  3. 3.

    Operating personnel at hydroelectric plants should develop an inventory with determination of the condition of rotor blades in adjustable-blade turbines at active hydroelectric plants with allowance for the presence of spare blades.

     
  4. 4.

    To avoid prolonged shutdowns for the fabrication of a new blade, it is expedient to have several spare blades at each hydroelectric plant in case the original ones fracture.

     
  5. 5.

    In manufacturing new turbines, several blades should be specified as spare parts delivered with the equipment for each hydroelectric plant.
