Abstract

The main purpose of this final year project is to study the process flow micro hydro system. Micro hydro system is primarily a system that uses natural water flow to generate electrical power. There is a waste of energy due to the excess of electrical power generated and a smaller amount of energy consumption. A project was carried out to design and simulate an energy storage system for micro hydro system to reduce the amount of energy wasted. The micro hydro system's powerhouse is a place where electrical energy was created via a turbine. There is an electronic load controller unit that acts as a controller to manage the electrical power generated by the system. The electrical power will divert to the main load assisted by the electronic load controller. The excessive electrical power produced will be channelled to the dummy load. Nonetheless, the electrical power that was channelled to the dummy load will usually be wasted or burned once there is zero power consumption. Therefore, this project will design and manufacture additional circuits in electronic load controller unit that can channel excess power to the second dummy load (energy storage) to meet the generated electrical power rather than redirect to dummy load and will be wasted. The excess energy can be used to pull a load, charge a battery, and heat up water. The gravitational energy of the load can be used to regenerate electricity, the battery can be used in the future and the hot clean water can be used for other purposes.
