Zean- A: The facts and plan
What is going to be changed?
The hydro turbine is going to be implanted under the school grounds, so nothing will be changed.
The water will go into a hydraulic ram which will push it into a turbine. The energy of the turbine will go into a generator. The turbine will push the water into a second hydraulic ram, and it will go into a cycle.
It uses hydroelectric energy
The water in the turbine produces kinetic energy, which turns into mechanical energy.
The average volume of water and the height determine the amount of energy produced.
Hydro energy can be used to produce energy on a very large scale with less kilowatts.
It uses the natural flow of water to give mechanical energy to give to the turbine for it to produce electric energy.
There are two types of hydroelectric turbines- impulse and reaction. You choose the type of turbine based off of its characteristics.
Jimmy- B: Who we need to hire
Who we need to hire
- Hydroelectric Plant Technician to make sure that nothing stops the water flowing,open and close the water gait
- Electrical engineer to figure out how much energy we need
- Construction workers to build the water ram and the turbines
Sreeja- D: Pros and Cons
Not much resources
No monthly fees
Slow generation process
- Expensive to buy the turbine
How will we get the funds?
