THE POSSIBILITY ARRANGEMENT OF MICROHYDROPOWER ON FINIŞ VALLEY COMPLETED IN ORDER TO PRODUCE CLEAN ENERGY PUBLISHEDCălin Ioan Iovan
Valorification of hydropower potential of streams in Romania should be regarded with a high concern in perspective shift to clean and small price energy production. Water based energy production can answer many requirements of modern society, namely low cost, high safety in operation of energy systems and not least about or no impact on the environment. Water resources are characterized by the fact that they are practically inexhaustible and have many and varied uses. Due to special interest posed by water for industry, agriculture, forestry and for any activities of people, it is necessary that the use of hydropower resources to be taken into account all the needs in order to provide a comprehensive and full recovery of water flows from mountains areas, where these is present. Successful attempt from Bărănelul Valley of the hydrographic basin Timiş river or Oituz Valley of the hydrographic basin Trotuş river, where they installed small hydropower (3 to 30 kW) showed that the concerns in this regard are in vain those providing power supply and operation of a forest cottage, trout nursery respectively, wich contribute to the well development of the activities but also to the decreasing of the production expenses in the trout’s reproduction and capitalization. The case study presents some aspects concerning the technical feasibility of the arrangement of hydropower on Finiş Valley from Codru-Moma Mountains to finish installing a trout nursery to ensure energy independence. More exactly, on the basis of absolute 3D coordinates of sections from water course and flows results in this sections was made an representation hydroenergetic survey on the valley, the situation of available power and power generated by different models of turbines (Francis, Banki, Kaplan), the potential maximum power and maximum power possible, wich can capitalize the debits and small fall (specific mountains areas waters), so that it shall inser through graphic representation of the generatinc set mhc model wich can be considered sufficient for the ensurance of the power independent of a trout nursery or of another objective.
