    The paper reviews the development of hydro-electric power, primarily in Scotland, over the past 90 years, starting with the first industrial installation at Foyers, followed by the construction of the aluminium hydros at Kinlochleven and Lochaber, the Galloway and Grampian schemes in the 1930s, the intense period of development by the Hydro Board in the 1940s to 1960s and the recent pumped storage...

    Rather than provide a general guide to the economic evaluation of hydro-electric schemes in developing countries, and to the assessment of their effect when integrated into the electricity systems, one scheme, the Lupohlo├é┬┐Ezulwini scheme first studied in 1978 and recently completed in Swaziland, is discussed in detail. Many of the aspects discussed will be common to other schemes. The paper is ba... View full abstract»

    Large hydro-electric generators are individually designed for the specific hydraulic and system conditions of a particular site. The paper reviews the various mechanical features of such a machine, in particular the bearings and how they are disposed relatively to the rotor, the stator frame core and windings with particular reference to the problems of transport to site, and the rotor design whic...

    The first part of the paper describes the advantages and disadvantages of a new design concept for reducing thermal stress in, and foundation loads from, the bearing brackets of large vertical hydro-electric generators. It shows that oblique spokes and oblique flexible plates represent an optimum design compromise under all major loading conditions. The second part introduces a new, 2-component ty...

  • Maintenance of hydro-electric plant

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):142 - 144
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (425 KB)

    The paper discusses the maintenance of both pumped storage and conventional hydro-electric plant in the United Kingdom, dealing specifically with the experiences of one Group of the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board. The types of hydro-electric plant considered are geographically well spread and are subject to a number of different hydraulic regimes. A computer program developed for the best ...

    The paper briefly details the evolution of control systems as applied to hydro-electric plant in the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board area over the past 20 years. Automatic control is described stressing the basic simplicity of hydro-electric plant. Remote control is treated in some depth with particular emphasis being placed on features peculiar to hydro stations. These include water level ... View full abstract»

  • Electrical auxiliary supply systems for hydro-electric power plants

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):148 - 153
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (807 KB)

    The paper examines the auxiliary equipment of hydro-electric generating stations and associated dams, spillways and other works in respect of the essentiality of electrical auxiliary supply to these equipments. Various alternative sources of auxiliary electrical supply are considered, the advantages and disadvantages of these are compared and proposals are made for high voltage distribution system...
