Uttaranchal Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (UJVNL) with its headquarter at Dehradun in the state ofUttaranchal (India) is operating, maintaining & constructing Hydro Power Plants. Dehradun is the capital of the state of Uttaranchal and is approximately 300 km far in northerndirection from New Delhi closed to the Himalayan Mountains and well-connected through road,rail & air. The main concern in this project is the rehabilitation of the following 5 power stationsbelow. Chibro with Ichari Dam Khodri Dhakrani Dhalipur KulhalIn this project was an assessment of the current physical condition of all of the 5 plants, whichincludes a survey of the project area and an inspection of all plant equipment, collection of data,records and statistics referring to the operation of the plants related to the I&C system.Furthermore, develop preliminary feasible options for modernization and upgrading and a stateof the art control concept for all of the 6 power stations.
TONS RIVER VALLEY POWER STATIONSChibro & Khodri Power Stations utilize the water of river Tons. Tons river is an importanttributary of the Yamuna River. This river joins Yamuna at Kalsi in the Northwestern part ofDehradun valley, which is approximately 50 km. away from Dehradun. A diversion dam acrossthe river Tons has been constructed at Ichari with a 6.2 km long headrace tunnel from thediversion dam to Chibro under ground power station. Ichari is approximately 100 km fromDehradun in the hilly terrain. Tons river upstream from Ichari dam Ichari dam on Tons river Tons river downstream

The totalinstalled electrical capacity is 240 MW.The main power station equipments including turbine, generator and power transformer had beensupplied by M/s Bharat Heavy Electrical Ltd. Bhopal.The turbines are Vertical shaft Francis turbines. Each unit has its own penstock with a butterflyvalve. The power station is provided with a unit system of layout, where each generator isdirectly connected to a power transformer.For the outdoor switchyard, 220 kV oil filled cables coming from transformers situated inpowerhouse. The Switchyard is connected through two 220 kV outgoing feeders to Khodri. 220 kV Switchyard Central Control Room Cavern with Control Room
KHODRI POWER STATIONThe tail water collection gallery of Chibro power house supplies water to the power Tunnel ofKhodri Power House by means of a siphon across river Tons.Khodri power station is a 4x30 MW surface power station built on right bank of river Yamunaand is nearly 50 km from Dehradun.The power station is located at 30° 30 30" N & 077° 4758" E closed to the barrage across riverYamuna at Dakpathar. The power station was commissioned in 1984.The headrace tunnel system consider a 7.5 m in diameter concrete lined circular tunnel with 4628m length and three tunnels of smaller diameter in remaining length.The total length of the tunnel system is 5.6 km. The tailrace is a short open channel connecting toriver Yamuna.The power station consists of four generating units each having a capacity of 30 MW. The totalinstalled electrical capacity is 120 MW. The main power station equipments including turbine,generator and power transformer had been supplied by M/s Bharat Heavy Electrical Ltd. Bhopal.The turbines are Vertical shaft Francis turbines. 220 kV Switchyard Turbine Hall Central Control Room
YAMUNA RIVER VALLEYRiver Yamuna originates from the Himalayas and is joined by its major tributary the Tons atKalsi, approximately 50 Km from Dehradun. The Yamuna river collect the water from anelaborate web of water channels all across North India. These tributaries of Yamuna are the mainsource of water in Northern India. A barrage across river Yamuna at Dakpathar 3 Kmdownstream of Kalsi has been constructed. 14 Km power channel takes of at the Dakpatharbarrage having its outfall into the river Asan, immediately upstream of the junction of Asan andYamuna rivers.Dhakrani & Dhalipur are the two power stations along this power channel with a total installedcapacity of 84.75 MW. Another power channel takes of at Asan barrage having its outfall intothe river Yamuna near Paonta Sahib. Kulhal power station with a capacity of 3x10 MW isrunning along this power channel.
