generation of hydroelectric power

INTRODUCTION
The potential for generation of hydroelectric power using the Jhimruk river was identified as early as 1960 by late Tony Hagen. Nepal electricity authority studied the project and implimentation in 1980’s and produced a feasibility study in July 1987. HMG of Nepal the requested funding for Jhimruk Hydro Electric project and implimentation from NORAD through NGO’s like UMN / BPC. A project and implimentation agreement was then signed between HMGN and UMN on 23 Feb, 1989.

LOCATION
Jhimruk hydro electric centre is located in Pyuthan district where the Jhimruk and Madi river tributaries of Rapti river come within 1.5 Km of each other, yet elevation difference is approx 210 m. Intake structure of the power plant is at Khaira VDC, whereas the power plant is situated at Ramdi VDC. Similarly, the main office of the center is located at Nayagaun VDC.

Hydroelectric power

Hydroelectric power (often called hydropower) is considered a renewable energy source. A renewable energy source is one that is not depleted (used up) in the production of energy. Through hydropower, the energy in falling water is converted into electricity without “using up” the water.
Hydropower energy is ultimately derived from the sun, which drives the water cycle. In the water cycle, rivers are recharged in a continuous cycle. Because of the force of gravity, water flows from high points to low points. There is kinetic energy embodied in the flow of water.
Waterwheel technology advanced over time. Turbines are advanced, very efficient waterwheels. They are often enclosed to further capture water’s energy.
Not long after the discovery of electricity, it was realized that a turbine’s mechanical energy could be used to activate a generator and produce electricity. The first hydroelectric power plant was constructed in 1882 in Appleton, Wisconsin. It produced 12.5 kilowatts of electricity which was used to light two paper mills and one home.

How a Hydroelectric Power System Works - Part 1

Flowing water is directed at a turbine (remember turbines are just advanced waterwheels). The flowing water causes the turbine to rotate, converting the water’s kinetic energy into mechanical energy.

Low-head Hydropower

Many smaller hydropower systems are considered “low-head” because the height from which the water falls is fairly low. Low-head hydropower systems are generally less than 20 feet high.

Environmental Considerations

High-head hydropower systems can produce a tremendous amount of power. However, large hydropower facilities, while essentially pollution-free to operate, still have undesirable effects on the environment.

Low-head and Low Impact Hydropower

Scientists today are seeking ways to develop hydropower plants that have less impact on the environment. One way is through low-head hydropower. Low-head hydropower project and implimentations are usually low impact as well—that is, they have fewer negative effects on the environment.
