Abstract

Standalone small (Pico Hydro and Micro Hydro) hydro power generation have started gaining popularity in remote areas. These generations require small water head and are much more compact. They also allow use of various types of generators and turbines. The only dependency is availability of continuous water head for their operation. In conventional hydro power generation, water reservoir is constructed to ensure continuous water supply. However, the water coming out of such hydro power generating stations is hardly recycled i.e. fed back to the reservoir and used for power generation over and over again. Hydraulic Ram pumps are often being used now days to make an efficient system. In addition to this, section of appropriate turbine plays important role in power conversion. Power, Water head, portability, reliability, maintenance, flow rate, civil works are some of the factors influencing selection of turbine. A Perpetual Motion Machine would be the ultimate requirement for best use of water resources available across the globe. Heron’s Fountain is a near solution for construction a near Perpetual Motion Machine for maintaining a continuous water head. Suitable turbine and generator selection shall be a challenge for constructing a small Hydro Power Generation based on Heron’s Fountain.
