Sedimentation, Water Treatment Process, Hydro Power


Sedimentation is the perhaps the oldest and most common water treatment process. Sediment is one of the biggest enemy of hydro power project might make project unfeasible due to increase in high cost of project. Although, Nepal has huge potential for hydro power due to glacier in the Himalayas, regular monsoon rain and local topography. There are much no of hydro power plant in the Himalayan River are affected by excessive sediment which will decrease the capacity of reservoir, Sedimentation basin was conducted using both experimental and numerical model simulation. Two important effect or necessary or specific effect to be considered were the effect of wind action and the effect of density stratification. The aim was to confirm that these effects are detrimental to the ability of a basin to remove particle from a suspension by the gravitational settlement process.
