ACKNOWLEDGEMENT We express our deep sense of gratitude to Sir Vishal Jain (HOD, Electrical & Electronics) and our seminar guide Mr. Sandeep Rathi for their constant encouragement and guidance during the course of our semester. It is very difficult for anyone to complete training without the active co-operation and the benefit of advice from people who are experts in their field of specialization.We are very thankful to them, although this is hardly an adequate compensation for the time they have expended. We would also like to thank our esteemed Principal Mr. Y.K. Jain for providing us such an opportunity to learn so much about our stream and the field work. Thanking All 3

INTRODUCTION Energy is the most important thing in this world. All living plants,animals (organisms) on this earth require energy to perform any type of work. The capacity to do a work is energy . Energy may be required either in smaller amount or in larger amount, depending upon the nature of work to be performed. The different things from which we get the energy are called as Energy Sources. There are two types of energy sources: 1. Conventional or Non-Renewable Energy Sources 2. Non-Conventional or Renewable Energy Sources Conventional or Non-Renewable Energy Sources : The energy sources, which we are using since ages and which are in danger of exhausting, are called as Conventional OR Non-Renewable Energy Sources. They are not renewed by Nature and are perishable i.e. going to get exhausted one day. e. g. coal, petroleum products, nuclear fuels etc. Non -Conventional or Renewable Energy Sources : These are the energy sources whose utilization technology is not yet fully developed. These are the sources, which can be recovered and reused. i.e. they can be used again and again to generate energy because nature supplies them back. e.g. solar energy, wind energy, tidal energy etc. HISTORY OF HYDROPOWER PLANTS The first recorded use of water power was a clock, built around 250 BC. Since that time, humans have used falling water to provide power for grain and saw mills, as well as a host of other applications. The first use of moving water to produce electricity was a waterwheel on the Fox River in Wisconsin in 1882, two years after Thomas Edison unveiled the incandescent light bulb. The first of many hydro electric power plants at Niagara Falls was completed shortly thereafter.
