Present and future of HYDROELECTRIC POWER GENERATION
All currently existing hydroelectric power generation methods use - fully, or partly – the potential energy of the water. There is no way to control (INCREASE) the velocity (speed) of the water unless we increase the height of the dam, or increase the vertical drop for example at a run off the river generating station.
These kinds of “increases” are rarely possible at all, or it would be so expensive that the cost makes it meaningless.
There is a recent Canadian patent that makes it possible to fully control (increase or decrease) the velocity of the water, and doing so in an absolutely economical way.
As laws of physics go – the same volume of water with double water speed would generate 8 EIGHT times more torque on the turbine, it is evident what effect this patent will bring to the hydroelectric generation world.
Additionally, because this new generation method can be utilized at already existing power stations as well as at new installations, we can substantially increase the generating capacity, without any large additional investment, and without any additional water volume requirement.
Due to the above facts, many sites previously considered being unfit for hydroelectric generation purpose, now come up as very potential opportunities.
