The dam is the most important component of hydroelectric power plant. The dam is built on a large river that has abundant quantity of water throughout the year. It should be built at a location where the height of the river is sufficient to get the maximum possible potential energy from water.
2) Water Reservoir
The water reservoir is the place behind the dam where water is stored. The water in the reservoir is located higher than the rest of the dam structure. The height of water in the reservoir decides how much potential energy the water possesses. The higher the height of water, the more its potential energy. The high position of water in the reservoir also enables it to move downwards effortlessly.
The height of water in the reservoir is higher than the natural height of water flowing in the river, so it is considered to have an altered equilibrium. This also helps to increase the overall potential energy of water, which helps ultimately produce more electricity in the power generation unit.
3) Intake or Control Gates
These are the gates built on the inside of the dam. The water from reservoir is released and controlled through these gates. These are called inlet gates because water enters the power generation unit through these gates. When the control gates are opened the water flows due to gravity through the penstock and towards the turbines. The water flowing through the gates possesses potential as well as kinetic energy.
4) The Penstock
The penstock is the long pipe or the shaft that carries the water flowing from the reservoir towards the power generation unit, comprised of the turbines and generator. The water in the penstock possesses kinetic energy due to its motion and potential energy due to its height.
WINDOWS AND ITS COMPONENTS The main components of Windows when you start your computer are the Desktop, My Computer, Recycle Bin, Start Button, Taskbar, and shortcuts to applications
Components of Environment:
Environment mainly consists of atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere. But it can be roughly divided into two types such as (a) Micro environment and (b) Macro environment. It can also be divided into two other types such as (c) Physical and (d) Biotic environment
Different components of food areCarbohydrates...they help our body... by giving energy to us... they are called as energy giving foods for eg.potatoFats... they helps our body for growth.. and muscle building.. they are know as body building foods.. For eg..Fish Minerals and vitamins... they give... energy to us for physical exercise.. and all... They are also good for our eyes... and many others Roughage and diet... they are important for our body... to make us fit... for eg... salad
hope it helps...
environment is the surrounding which we live in.
the components of environment are mountains rivers forests deserts sky
i didin know the answer
In other words environment refers to those surroundings that surrounds living beings from all sides and affect their lives in toto. It consists of atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere. It's chief components are soil, water, air, organisms and solar energy
It has four main components: plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Blood has many different functions, including: transporting oxygen and nutrients to the lungs and tissues.
Living Environment: All living organisms around us viz. plants, animals, and microorganisms. This is also called the Biotic Environment. Earth's environment can be further subdivided into the following four segments:
