Working Principle of Hydro Electric Power Plant

Working Principle of Hydro Electric Power Plant Points : Working Principle of Hydro Electric Power Plant Hydroelectric power plants use the potential energy of water store in dam build across the river. Potential energy of store water is changed into kinetic energy through first passing it through the penstock pipe. Kinetic energy of water is then changed into mechanical energy in water turbine. Turbine is attached to electric generator. Mechanical energy accessible at shaft of turbine is changed into electrical energy with means of generator. As gravity provides the force which makes water fall, energy stored in water is call gravitational potential energy.
