Tata Power announced the successful commissioning of a 10 kW micro hydro project.
The low-head micro-hydro turbine, installed in the tailrace of the 150 MW Bhira hydro power station in Maharashtra, utilizes the existing flow rate available to generate supplementary clean energy to manage its auxiliary loads.
The micro unit was successfully synchronized to the grid.
The successful installation and commissioning of the 10 kW micro hydro turbine is a new breakthrough for the Bhira Project, officials said. "The micro turbine is connected to the 415 V auxiliary network. The invertors and other associated equipment required for synchronising the unit to the auxiliary grid was jointly developed by Clean Technology Group and Tata Power Engineers. Tata Power will now be in a position to add this facility at additional locations," an official said.
Mahesh Paranjpe, Head-Hydros Tata Power stated, "The successful installation and commissioning of the micro hydro turbine is a significant milestone at Bhira. We are happy with this breakthrough."
The micro turbine generator was customised and indigenously manufactured in Mumbai by Casmir Group based on the patented technology exclusively licensed from the University of Southampton.
