Earned Value/Risk Applied To Hydro Power Plant Design
Guatemala has embarked on an ambitious program to reduce dependency on oil-based power generation by 50% in 15 years. Based on the 2007 findings of the Institute of Energy of Japan, Guatemala has increased electrical generation from hydro power plants by installing power plants ranging from 5MW to 40MW. However there are risks arising from the needs of local communities and environmental groups requiring effective communication strategies. Further there are technical design risks associated with the calculation of head (altitude) and flow that drive the investments needed for the turbine, generator and piping diameter. Monte-Carlo simulation can be used to assess the confidence in field data for these design parameters.
