Hydroelectric turbines are subject to tremendous pressures and continuous high-speed rotation. Prolonged operational stress reduces the efficiency of hydroelectric power stations by warping and shifting component parts over time. As demand for renewable energy sources continues to rise, power station inefficiencies become less tolerable.
