  • Advantages of Hydro Power Plant
    • Water is self – replenishing, non wasting.
    • Water reaches the powerhouse site on its own.
    • Water after producing electricity can be used for drinking or irrigation.

  • Classification of HEP Plant based on Capacity
    • Micro Hydro plants : < 100KW
    • Mini Hydro plants : 100KW to 1MW
    • Small Hydro plants : 1MW to few MW
    • Hydro plants : More than a few MW
    • Super Hydro plants : More than 1000MW
  • Classification of HEP Plant based on Operation
    • Base Load Plant – Continuous power generation
    • Peak Load Plant – Regulated Release of water is permitted
