Installation Of Flood Light Powered by Pico-Hydropower Generator in Pulong Mangga Caduang Tete Macabebe Pampanga
Keywords:Hydropower, Hydro Generator, Pico-hydro, Vortex Gravity Turbine, Floodlight.
Energy generation creates a high impact on community where high prices of electricity occurs when time passes. Hydropower generator converts the kinetic energy of the water flow into a harvested electricity with the use of turbines and other types of hydropower generator that can be used in every house or in a small-scale usage. Pico-hydro generator usually generates under 5Kw of energy that usually used in small houses or other facilities that does not require a lot of power. Energy generation form a small place can have a lot of impact on the community itself or for individual use. Water flow is everywhere whether it is strong or weak that can be used as a source of energy. A particular place in Pampanga was known for its flooding problems that it can last up to months or even years and combined with dark surroundings that can create an accident. A floodlight that can brighten the surroundings will be used to lighten up a particular section of a place that is dangerous without light, like bridge where a wrong step can make you fall into the water and die. Lighting up a dangerous bridge powered by the water that was flowing from it can lessen the risk of accidents. Experiments in building a generator was executed including testing and improvement of the generator. The study revealed that the hydropower generator can supply electricity to floodlight that brighten the target place creating a safer passage for the residents.
