What is the difference between "static" and "kinetic" energy? How are
they utilized in the hydroelectric power generation industry?
Kinetic Energy: This is a energy by which the body posses during a
motion , it also defined as the work done needed for acceleration of a
body of a given mass to move it from static position to the moving
position to ensure the kinetic friction leading to movement of body by
kinetic Energy .
Static Energy:
When a body is in rest position the friction acting on the body is zero ,
but as soon as well apply the force on body the body gains some
motion and the force applied up till the body's friction is more than the
applied force ,in such condition the Energy produced by the body is
static Energy.
Hydroelectric power is a renewable energy source which uses the
power of moving water to produce electricity.
In Large scale hydroelectricity projects the construction of Dams is
done, the water form river and tidal flows are also used the power of
moving water to generate renewable electricity.
In generation of electricity a hydroelectric dam converts the potential
energy stored in a water reservoir behind a dam to kinetic energy after
this the kinetic energy is used as the water flows down through the
dam to turn a turbine.
Here the generator converts the turbine’s mechanical energy into
electricity. The overhead electric energy then goes through various
transmission processes before it’s out.
