6 Excursion to the Novosibirsk HPP

Excursion to the Novosibirsk HPP

Posted on June 24, 2011 by team

Let’s make an excursion to the Novosibirsk HPP. This time we won’t use any technical terms and will try to explain the principle of its work as accessibly as possible.

A control panel. The management and monitoring of the condition of the whole plant is carried out in this room.

“Earthed”, “Don’t turn on! People are working”

Everything is computerized.

This is not a print screen.

The process of the conversion of water energy into electricity begins here. At first, water intakes suck water into a turbine.

The water layer is about 4 meters deep, so fish which swims even deeper is not hurt. Even if it gets into the turbine, it will survive.

The process of closing and opening of the valves of the water intakes takes place in this room.

Now let’s go down to the turbine. It’s right under our feet. On the left – the axis of the rotor.

When water enters the turbine and rotates the blades (and the rotor respectively), the energy of water is converted into the energy of the rotor. The axis goes up.

    Even simplier would be: think about the dynamo on the older bicycles – the front wheel moves the dynamo, which generates eletricity, that powers the lamp. But in this case, the front wheel is swapped with a pipe filled with water.

    Simple enough, but wont produce so many pretty pictures.. :/
