ABSTRACT
This paper deals with a description and presents the results of the calculations of possibilities of the semi-peak operation of a canal regulating water power plant. These plants are of a great significance for the electric system. The largest Slovakian canal regulating water power plant is the Gabčíkovo power plant. This hydro-electric power plant is a part of Gabčikovo waterwork. Specific conditions of the Gabčíkovo waterwork had to be included in the calculations. Hydrodynamic models developed at our Department were utilized for the hydraulic solution of the inlet canal for the Gabčíkovo PP. The semi-peak operation would represent a compromise between the originally designed peak operation and the basically forced continuous-flow operation, where by the existing state of the waterworks on the Danube River would have to be accepted.
