Because of present and anticipated future power demands, it is now
necessary for the San Diego Gas and Electric Company to expand the generating
capacity at its Encina Power Plant. In order to provide sufficient
cooling water for the expanded plant, the existing inlet tunnels and
associated structures must be modified. Because the complexity of the
structure made it essentially impossible to analyze accurately the flow
pattern and associated head losses mathematically, a model study was
undertaken at the St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory. The hydraulic
model was built and tested to assist in the development of a satisfactory
design and to verify the final design.
