flows from the reservoir to the turbine
 Turbine :Turned by the force of water on their
 Power Plant : Power generation and
 Generator : Converts mechanical energy of
turbine into electrical energy
 Control Gates : Control the flow of water
Types of Hydro Power Plants

 Storage Plants
 Pumped Storage Plants
 Run-of-River Plants
Storage Plants
 Impound and store water in a reservoir formed
behind a dam.
 During peak demands, enough water can be
released to meet the additional demand.
 Water flow rate may change greatly
 May involve dramatic environmental
consequences including soil erosion, degrading
shorelines, crop damage, disrupting fisheries
and other wildlife, and even flooding
Pumped Storage Plants

 Reuse water after it is initially used to

generate electricity.
 Water is pumped back to the reservoir
during peak-off hours
 During peak hours this water is used again
for generating electricity
Run-of-River Plants

 Amount of water running through the

turbine varies with the flow rate of water in
the river
 Amount of electricity generated changes
with seasons and weather conditions
 Since these plants do not block water in a
reservoir, their environmental impact is
Hydro Turbines
Hydro turbines can be classified on the
basis of force exerted by water on the
A) Reaction Turbines
 Francis
 Kaplan
 Propeller
 Bulb
B) Impulse Turbines
 Pelton
Hydro Turbines
Type of turbine to be used in a plant is
decided on the basis of available head

Head Range
  2m   to      70  m                    Kaplan
 30m to    450  m                    Francis
 above 300 m                     Pelton

Also a turbine is characterized by its

specific speed.
Power House

 1. Machine Hall/Unit Bay

 2. Erection/Service Bay
 3. Control Room/Auxiliary Bay

 • Avg. Gross Head = MDDL + 2/3(FRL - MDDL) -TWL(4 Units Running)

= 203 + 2/3(208 - 203) -184.24
= 22.09 m.
 • Rated/Net Head = Avg. Gross Head - Head Loss
= 22.09 - 0.75
= 21.34 m.
 • Max. Gross Head = FRL - min TWL
= 208.00 - 181.78
= 26.22 m
 • Max. Net Head = Max. Gross Head-Head Loss
= 26.22-0.75
= 25.47 m
 • Min. Gross Head = MDDL - TWL(4 Units Running)
= 203.00 - 184.24
= 18.76m
 • Min. Net Head = Min. Gross Head - Head Loss
=18.76 - 0.75
=18.01 m.

 # calculations has been done for PARBATI H.E. PROJECT, STAGE-II

Selection of Machine Speed
 Economically should have highest
practicable speed
 Deciding parameters :
• Variation of head
• Silt content
• Cavitation
• Vibrations
• Drop in peak efficiency
 Hydro Generators are low speed salient pole type
 Rotor is characterized by large diameter and short axial
 Capacity of such generator varies from 500 KW to 700
 Power factor are usually 0.90 to 0.95 lagging.
 Available head is a limitation in the choice of speed of
hydro generator.
 Standard generation voltage in our country is 3.3KV,
6.6KV, 11 KV ,13.8 KV, & 16KV at 50 Hz.
 Short Circuit Ratio varies from 1 to 1.4.

Design Study
 Output equation can be derived by the basic emf equation of a
hydro generator.
This has been taken from Electric Machine Design ,AK Sawhney.

 Output Equation: Q = C0 * D2 * L * Ns

Where, output coefficient, C0 = 11 * Bav * ac * Kw * 10-3

Q = kVA rating of machine

Bav = specific magnetic loading
ac = specific electrical loading
Kw = winding factor

Source: (derived from output equation of AC machines) (Pg-

456,Electric Machine Design, AK Sawhney)
Design Study
 Calculation of Output Coefficient
Is calculated from a graph obtained by analyzing the
published data of 40 generators in manufacture in USA,
Canada, UK, Japan a Europe.

 Calculation of Number of Poles

using P=120f/N
Frequency f is 50 Hz as per Indian Standards

 Air Gap Diameter

Di= (60 * Vr) / (pi * N)
Vr is the Maximum peripheral velocity obtained from a
graph between Vr and Number of poles
Design Study
 Calculation of Stator core length
 Stator core length is the gross length of the stator and
can be calculated by using the formula for output
 L t= W/ (C0* Di 2 * N)
W = Rated KVA of machine
C0 = Output coefficient obtained from curve
N = Rated RPM of the machine

Design Study
 Pole pitch is defined as the peripheral distance between two
consecutive poles. It may be expressed as number of slots, degrees
.(electrical or mechanical)
Calculated as : ψ= pi x Di/P
Where Pi (constant) =22/7
Di = Air gap diameter in meters
P = No. of poles
 Flux per pole
Flux per pole (φ) =Mean flux density * Pole pitch (ψ)* Length of core

Mean Flux density is assumed to be 0.6-0.7 Wb/m2

 Turns per phase = = (1.1 * Vph)/4.44fφ

Design Study
 Calculation of number of parallel paths

 Total current per slot should not exceed 5000 A.

 If I be the rated current per phase and there be p parallel paths

then current per conductor is I/p , and current per slot is 2*I/p
This should not exceed the limit of 5000 A.
5000 > 2 * I / p

 The value of p greater than or equal to this value, that satisfies other
designing constraints is chosen as the appropriate number of
parallel paths.

 After the calculation of turns per phase we can calculate the

approximate no. of stator slots.
Design Study
 No. of slots is given by,
Ns = (no. of phases) * T ph * (no. of parallel paths) /
(turns per coil)
Note: Turns per coil = 1 for bar winding
 Number of conductor per slots = 2 ( for bar winding)
Design Study
 Short Circuit Ratio
 Defined as the ratio of field current
required to produce rated voltage under
open circuit conditions to the field current
required to circulate rated current at short
 Short circuit ratio is the reciprocal of
synchronous reactance Xd
 For salient pole hydro electric generators
SCR varies from 1.0 to 1.1.
Design Study
 Effect of SCR on machine performance
 Stability : Low value implies lower stability limit, as the
maximum power output is inversely proportional to Xd
 Parallel Operation : Low SCR leads to high Xd, that is
small synchronising power.Machines become more
sensitive to voltage and torque disturbances.
 Cost : A high SCR adds to the size of the machine
making it costlier.
 Present trend is to make a machine with low SCR.
 This is due to the recent advancement in fast acting
control and excitation systems.
