Résumé

Brazil’s has a vast and dense hydrographic network. In Para state’s Tucuruí municipality, about 300 km south of Belem, there’s a hydroelectric central which is considered large – the UHE Tucuruí located on Tocantins River. Study area of this current work is restricted to a stretch of Tocantins River starting from the UHE Tucuruí downstream until Tucuruí city. The flow has been modeled for the evaluation of sites where hydrokinetic turbines can be installed to take advantage of UHE Tucuruí remaining potentials. This potential can be used to supply communities still isolated in the region. This study guides on the hydrodynamic modeling of the stretch mentioned above, starting from bathymetric data collecting and substrate composition, elaboration of terrain’s elevation model and substrate model. Hydrodynamic simulations are established by the Saint-Venant Model. Modeling results, i.e., velocities and depths analyzed in the study area, serve to the evaluation and determination of sites to set up hydrokinetic turbines to explore remaining power.
