Hydro electric power

  1. 1. Kardan UniversityKardan University Uploaded BY: Engr.Ahmad SameerUploaded BY: Engr.Ahmad Sameer
  2. 2.  Hydroelectric power is one method of creating energy by using water.  Uses water starting in a reservoir, and ends with the energy in the form of light in a light bulb.  Hydroelectricity is generated in a hydroelectric power plant.
  3. 3.  The dam, lake, or reservoir stores water  The water goes through the Penstock to the turbines http-//www.ucsusa.org/clean_energy/renewable_energy_basics/how-hydroelectric-energy- works.html#Converting_Moving_Water_to_Electricity
  4. 4.  The turbine (propelled by the force of the water being carried in) turns the generator to produce the electricity  This electricity is then sent through power lines to produce energy in the form of light in a light bulb. http://eetd.lbl.gov/inventors/hydro/hydro-links.html
  5. 5.  Dam, Lake, or Reservoir  Kinetic energy stays the same  Gravitational potential energy high  Dam holds water against the force of gravity  Penstock  Gravitational kinetic energy rises  Gravitational potential energy decreases  Turbine  Gravitational kinetic energy becomes kinetic energy of motion  Gravitational potential energy stays the same http-//www.biocrawler.com/encyclopedia/Water_power
  6. 6.  Generator  Kinetic energy of motion rises  Potential energy rises  The water transitions to energy  Power Lines  Kinetic energy of motion rises  Potential energy decreases  Light Bulb  Kinetic energy of motion stays the same  Potential energy stays the same  Kinetic and potential energy have reached equilibrium Microsoft Powerpoint Clip Art
  7. 7.  Largest power plants in the United States:  Washington  Grand Coulee Dam  Chief Joseph Dam  John Day Dam  The Dalles Dam  Oregon  John Day Dam  The Dalles Dam  Arizona-Nevada border, Colorado River  Hoover (Boulder) Dam http://www.leo.lehigh.edu/news/local/index.html
  8. 8.  The largest hydroelectric power plants in the United States are located in the northwestern states of the country  This is because they are closer to the ocean  Providing more water to be used in the process of creating electricity
  9. 9.  Is Hydroelectric Power a sustainable source of electricity?  Yes it is!  Hydroelectric power is a renewable source which produces little to no waste while creating electricity
  10. 10.  Why is hydroelectric power not the main source of electricity if it is sustainable and does not produce much waste?  Is there any way that the amount of waste can be reduced to no waste at all? How?
