Abstract

This paper describes a technology based on municipal waste water for electric power generation and evaluates the reliability of the micro-hydro-photo-voltaic (MHPV) hybrid power system using Gaussian distribution approach and flow duration curve (FDC). Reuse of municipal waste water of the city can be a stable, inflation proof, economical, reliable and renewable source of electricity. The hydro potential of waste water from community flowing through sewage system has been determined to produce a FDC by ordering the recorded water flows. Several factors such as design pressure, the roughness of the pipe’s interior surface, method of joining, weight, ease of installation, accessibility to the sewage system, design life, maintenance, weather conditions, availability of material, related cost and likelihood of structural damage have been considered for a particular penstock. A MHPV has been proposed to provide reliable electric energy to Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi (India).
