Technical Analysis of Micro Hydel Plant in Punjab

Parminder Singh [4] | Rupinderjit Singh [2]

Abstract: Hydro power kept on assuming a noteworthy part in the development of electrical administration around the world. The power plants of hydro electric produce from few kW to thousands of MW and are substantially more efficient and reliable as a clean and renewable source of energy than power plants of fossil fuels. Micro-hydropower systems are comparatively small sources of power that are accurate in majority of the cases for individual clients as well as group of clients who are independent of the grid of supply of electricity. A micro-hydropower system is usually categorized as having a capacity of generation of less than 100 kW. In this research work, a survey of plant is done and the problems are found out. The main problem of hydropower plant is trash rack. A trash rack is used to filter out waste materials from water so that only water can go into river and other waste materials like polythene, small clothes and debris can be filtered out. But there is no trash rack. The hydro plant has worked only for 3 months but is should work for 12 months. The main problem is that it is not providing output which it should produce. So steps must be taken care off to increase the production of electricity.
