Abstract

HYDRO- ELECTRIC POWER PLANT

Ashfaq J.*, Faizan S., Faiyaz H., Munqeez M., Adil K.

ABSTRACT

• Hydroelectric power (hydropower) systems convert the kinetic energy in flowing water into electric energy. • Falling or flowing water turns a propeller like piece called a turbine. • The turbine turns a metal shaft in an electric generator which produces electrictiy. • The first hydropower was set up in 1897 at Darjeeling of 200KW capacity • the first major hydro-electric power plant was commissioned in 1902 of 4.5 MW capacity of sivasamudram scheme in mysore. • The amount of electricity that can be generated by a hydropower plant depends on two factors. • flow rate - the quantity of water flowing in a given time; and • head - the height from which the water falls. • The greater the flow and head, the more electricity produced. Flow Rate = the quantity of water flowing Head = the height from which water falls
