An evaluation of appropriate hydro pump and turbine systems in generating electricity
With proper supply of wind energy and water resources being available in this particular location. The plan is to harness both sources in an efficient and economically feasible way. Such as a hybrid renewable energy power plant, which will use both wind energy and kinetic energy from water to produce power. The produced will be then supplied to meet local energy demands. One of the major issue with harnessing renewable energy is the inconsistency. As the amount of wind flow is not variable with time, the power output will be inconsistent as well which is not desirable at all. To overcome this issue, this plan includes having a combined wind mill and water turbine station together. As Langkawi is not compatible for building a high rise water damn with natural advantage, a water reservoir will be built and with the extra power produced from the wind turbine will be used to bring water up to the reservoir. In the event of insufficient wind flow, the water turbine will be used to compensate the insufficiency. In this paper, a comprehensive plan regarding this specific scenario is presented with proper data and scholarly material published.
