HARVESTING ELECTRICAL ENERGY FROM WATER SUPPLY TANK

F. ALI, M. N. ARBAB

Abstract


Efficiency plays an important role while considering any practical system. Generally electrical means are used to pump water into water supply tanks. At day time the water is allowed to rush through the distribution pipe and is supplied to the consumers. This supply is periodic (almost twice a day) and for a time duration of two hours. In country like Pakistan where we are faced with energy crises its role can be manipulated, and with certain modifications and additions the available potential energy can be utilized to generate electrical power as a byproduct in addition to water supply. This would make the system highly efficient, economical and we would have energy recovery from the system. This energy can be either utilized directly or can be stored in batteries for later use.
