What are the advantages of hydroelectric (clue. what is it fuelled by?)
Fuelled by water, so a clean source of energy
1 of 17
What are the advantages of hydroelectric energy ( reliant)
does not rely on other power sources to produce energy
2 of 17
what are the advantages of hydroelectric (pollution)
Does not pollute air, with its used energy, as all the water is returned to source of origin
3 of 17
advantages hydroelectric( made)
Can be created 24/7 assuming body of water used never runs dry
4 of 17
advantages hydroelectric ( dam)
Dams are constructed so they can shut the gates and use the water when the power is in higher demand.
5 of 17
Disadvantages hydroelectric power plants
Very expensive, must be built to high standard. e.g. cost is higher and the plantation must run for long time before profitable
6 of 17
disadvantages hydroelectric (dams
Creating dams lead to flooding of land- leading to environmental and natural habitats may be destroyed
7 of 17
disadvantages hydroelectric dams power
can cause a lot of water to have problem, creating dams in one location may mean that those down river no longer have control of water flow, this can lead on to arguments in place neighbouring countries that share water supply
8 of 17
What is topographic relief
It consists of nothing more than channeling the water down a gradient and introducing it to a turbine, which generates current.
9 of 17
Two conditions to produce Hydroelectric energy
Source of flowing water. topographic relief in landscape to provide the flowing water with potential energy
10 of 17
How is hydroelectric energy produced step 1
Damming the river converts water energy(kinetic) into Potential energy
11 of 17
Hydroelectric step 2
In the dam, where the intake opens, the weight of the reviser forces water through a channel called the penstock
12 of 17
Hydroelectric step 3
The water rushes towards the turbine, hitting it's blades and causes it to spin
13 of 17
Hydroelectric step 4
The spinning turbine causes the generator to spin, converting from mechanical to electrical energy
14 of 17
Hydroelectric step 5
The dams power house is also have transformers , this converts the electrical energy to high voltage
15 of 17
Hydroelectric step 6
It travels through the power lines to the nesscesary places.
16 of 17
Hydroelectric power station source
The water is turned from GPE to kinetic, then to electricity at night they pump
