India’s growth in Power generation has been spectacular over the past several years. Apart from conventional Hydro and Thermal Power, the non-conventional Solar and wind Power have greatly contributed to this upsurge. There is however some technical issues related to the practices generally being followed or otherwise, in the operation of these plants particularly for hydro which need attention. This paper attempts to bring out and discuss these issues. While doing so, concepts involved are also touched to enable the Power Station engineers to fully appreciate these issues for implementation to reap maximum benefits of the asset they have been entrusted with for operation.
