“ A topical hydro plants is a system with three parts” ( Got it from the article “Hydropower Going with the flow” by National Geographic Society (NGS). First part of the hydro system is an electric plants where the electricity is produced. The second part of the hydro system is the dams that opened and closed to control of the waterflow. The final part of the hydro system is the reservoir that just stores the water. Typical hydro plants that produced power by the moving water because the three parts is produces electricity, dams opened and closed to control water, and stores the water in the reservoir.

Hydropower uses the generators to produces energy from the moving water. The first step before the generators starts producing

The amount of water telling that of the measurement of water drops goes in the intake to the turbines and took some water out of the reservoirs also how much to stores after. The engineers uses dams similar to nature the waterfalls is one example because waterfalls just keep dropping water without any advance technologies and generators include water turbines. It’s depends on the currents of the water but the engineers had to use the certain rivers to builts dams in different sizes like the height, miles, and wide. Mostly the United States, Canada, and China are the biggest hydroelectric power plants in the world. So they focus on the electricity to power after collecting from moving water to the power grid in the generators right to the electric lines ("Hydropower Going With”).

People use hydropower at the river and the dams because they believe in the river is a clean fuel source. They also thinks that hydropower is the cheapest way to generate electricity in today than before past years. Hydropower is an renewable yearly by the snow and rainfall. Usually the snow and rain come from originating in hills and mountains because people knows the water cycle is part of this situation. After the water goes from the
