Small River Hydropower
|PRODUCTION FORCE BY ASSR||UTILIZATION OF WATER RESOURCES IN MANUFACTURING|
The use of water power by the Komi rivers is of great popular importance, especially in connection with the decisions of the nineteenth party ' s Congress and the September CPSS Plenum, aimed at maximizing the growing needs of our workers. The electrification of the forestry and agricultural sectors of the Republic can be carried out effectively through the use of the most efficient of cheap energy Rivers. By their natural conditions, the ASSR Code refers to areas with a fairly high hydropower density.
According to Comi ' s affiliate of AN USSR, the hydropower density of the territory of the Republic, i.e., the power of GEC, which is 1 km2, in the large and medium rivers of Komi, is 5, 5 kW/km2. The known hydropower reserve in the Komi Republic is also the small rivers, which provide an average of 0, 8 kW/km2. Thus, the total hydropower density for all categories of rivers is averaged by ACSR Codes 6, 3 kW/km2. By basins of individual rivers, this value is increased to 8 kW/km2. Although the total power of small rivers is about seven times smaller than the capacity of medium and large rivers, small rivers can be more energy-friendly.
The hydropower resources of the small rivers Komi ASSR are very unevenly distributed to individual areas and basins. For example, the highest density is as expected from the above characteristics of the run-off conditions, the small rivers of the Urala hill. Here, for example, in the pool. The hydroelectric density reaches the highest value of 5, 0-5, 5 kW/km2. The density in the Timan area is quite high, ranging from 2 to 3 kW/km2. The stable basins of the Republic are characterized by hydropower density in the small rivers of about 0, 8-1, 0 kW/km2. The smallest energy density has, due to low winter costs, the north-eastern rivers less than 0, 5 kW/km2.
