New Methodology of Optimisation of Water Conductor System in Hydropower
- Aug 9, 2021 6:12 pm GMT
Water conductor system in a hydro power projects conducts water required for generation of power from
reservoir to the power house. The purpose of this study is to elaborate new methodology of optimisation of
water conductor system in hydropower developed by a Practicing Engineer based on design experience and
detail research carried out for verifying research output for a practical range applicable for major hydro power
projects. The new optimisation methods of all the major components of water conductor system including
intake, desilting basins, surge shafts and pressurised conduits are elaborated in this study. The optimisation of
the desiting basins will be developed based on further studies carried out on the most read articles on the
desiting basins on Google search engine published by the author. The optimisation of the tail race surge shaft
published by the author and topped the list of Google Search Engine is taken as base to develop methodology
for optimisation of surge shaft. The methodology of the optimisation of intake and tunnel are based on design
experience of author. The optimisation methods suggested in this study will be useful in water conductor
system optimisation and, hence, the cost of the hydropower projects can be minimized.
