A condition of resonance in a large hydroelectric development is analyzed and the reasons the plant vibrated at selected frequencies and with definite pressure and discharge amplitudes are explained. The impedance theory is used in the analysis. The complete system is programmed for solution on the digital computer using the method of characteristics and the resonating conditions are reproduced as they actually occurred.
