Abstract

A micro hydro generator is a hydroelectric generator which generates electricity from 5kW to 100kW by using the natural water flow. Micro hydro generator altered the potential energy to an electrical energy. This research desired to be implemented by using a micro hydroelectric generator which is embedded at the continuous flow of effluent discharge point domestic Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP). This research evaluates the potential of electricity generation from micro hydroelectric generator attached to a 100,000PE Sewerage Treatment Plant based on the power output obtained from calculation of electrical power. Other than that, this research also focused on the relative range in measurement of head of the micro hydroelectric generator and average flow rate that can be suited to install in STP and the overview of micro hydroelectric generator on the actual application with the consideration of payback period is summarized. The ultimate aim of the whole application is to have a self-ecosystem electrical power generated for the internal use of STP by using its own flowing water in supporting the sustainable engineering towards renewable energy and energy efficient approach.
