It has support for several math libraries, including BLAS, ATLAS, FFTW,
UFSPARSE. If you install a precompiled version, the support is
automatically enabled in most distributions. Symbolic math is supported
in octave-forge (see using the GiNaC library. I
haven't used it much I so I can't say how good it is.

Octave forge includes some signal and image processing functions, but I
don't know whether there is anything specific to hydraulics or power

I'm guessing you're asking whether there is an equivalent of Matlab's
Simulink, and the answer is no.
