Name of the Proposal:


To generate 1.7 MW power (around) from power plant Discharge cooling water by using hydro
turbine, +10 m MSL Head of Matarbari USC CFPP.

Background:

The land reclamation and elevation of Matarbari USC CFPP (2*600 MW) shall be constructed to
the following are and elevation:

Power Block and Switchyard: +10m MSL

Coal Storage Yard: +5m MSL +10 m MSL Cooling water Discharge
Coal Power Generation Company Bangladesh Limited.

From the above drawing we can see that power plant cooling discharge water will go to sea from
+10m MSL to existing sea level .So from this easily we can get a water head of +7m.
Total plant water discharge through discharge channel will be approximately 50 meter cube per
second.
Power for hydro Turbine in kilowatts can be determined by the following equation:
KW = H x Q x g x ƞ
Where,
H=Head
Q= Flow,
g = Specific gravity
Ƞ= efficiency
Hydropower or water power is power derived from the energy of falling water or fast running
water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes. Hydropower is called a renewable energy
source. In Matarbari USC CFPP the GL of the Plant is +10 MSL and flow of cooling water is 50
50 m3/s. After completion of sole purpose this amount of water will be discharge in sea. So, we
can use the water flow and head by hydro turbine.

Hydropower Equation:
As we know, power equation for hydro turbine is
P=HxQxgx ƞ
Where,
H (head) = 7 m, (net head)
Q (flow) = 50 m3/s, (approximately)
g = 9.81 m/s2
Ƞ= 50% (we are considering the efficiency 50%)

KW = H x Q x g x ƞ
= 7 x 50 x 9.81 x 0.5
= 1716.75 KW=1.71 MW

Basic Design:

Condenser
Cooling water discharge

Power Block,+10m MSL

Advantages:
• Renewable Energy, Clean Energy Source, Domestic Energy Source.
• No Fuel Cost.
• No Carbon dioxide
• Doesn't pollute the air like power plants that burn fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas.

Conclusion:
If we can implement this model after detail design and feasibility study it would be a cheap
resource of power from Discharge cooling water by which we can make 1.7 MW power. In
future in this area a lot of power plant will be built and we hope the elevation of those power
plants would be same like Matarbari USC CFPP. By implementing our concept in those
power plant easily we can produce 1.7 MW power from each plant.
