Mammoth Pool Project has a normal static head of 1100 ft which is within the operating range of either the impulse or reaction type hydraulic turbine. An economic analysis is made for using two 88,000 hp turbines, either of the multinozzle impulse or of the reaction type. Power generation and motoring operations of each type are evaluated with the final evaluation justifying the selection of two reaction turbines for this powerhouse.
