Flow duration curves

Ranko Žugaj, Željko Andreić, Krešimir Pavlić, Lidija Fuštar

Abstract

The authors describe flow duration curves and the way in which they are defined in case the data in the profile under study are insufficient. Typical curve shapes are compared with profiles of selected prototypes of future small hydropower plants. The procedure for defining flow duration curves in a watercourse profile with insufficient data is presented for the karst segment of the Kupa drainage area. The influence of underground retention basins in the Kupa and Cetina drainage areas is considered for both bare karst and covered karst.
