Calculate the power generated by a station which has a head of 300m, a flow rate of 63000kg/s and an overall efficiency of 75% (4 marks)

acceleration due to gravity= 9.81m/s2

Head= 300m

Efficiency rate= 75%

Velocity= 63000kg/s

P= ghrv

P = acceleration due to gravity × Head × Efficiency rate × Velocity

P = 9.81 × 300 ×

 × 63000


     = 140MN
