A Design and Analysis of Artificial Vortex (ArVo) Based Stand-Alone Microgrid on Universities of Bangladesh
Journal of Energy Research and Reviews,
The administration of universities of Bangladesh faces financial drawbacks every year due to subsidies in the field of electrical power cost. The reason behind this is, students, consume more electric power than they pay for. To solve this problem a modern hydroelectric technology can be implemented. This new technology is called Artificial Vortex (ArVo). This method of power generation utilizes the natural tendency of whirlpool formation of fluids by defining a new flow path thereby causing a turbulent circular movement of fluid layers. Every day students and teachers use a huge volume of water. This water is excluded from the university premises by the wastewater paths. This wastewater flow can be utilized to generate electricity. In Artificial Vortex, a curved wall is designed in the water path to concentrate the water flow and generate rotational energy. This rotational energy is implemented on a vertical axis turbine. This turbine is rotated by the water flow impact and produce clean electricity through an alternator. The cost of electricity has been simulated by HOMER Pro software.
