Mukerian Hydel Project Stage – I

MUKERIAN HYDEL PROJECT, STAGE-I (207 MW)

Mukerian Hydel Project is one of the main Hydro Electric Projects in the Northern Region situated in the Hoshiarpur District of Punjab. The Mukerian Hydel Project is run of the river project, constructed at Mukerian Hydel Channel emanating from Shah-Nehar Barrage  constructed  down stream of Pong Dam on River Beas . The Barrage has 52 gates and a small artificial lake of holding capacity 3404 acres feet to feed the Mukerian Hydel Channel. Mukerian Hydel Channel is 37 Km .long and lined with Cement Concrete and having maximum water carrying capacity of 11500 cusecs. The Mukerian Hydel Project comprises of 4 No. Power Houses. Power House No. 1 & 2 have 6 Nos (3 at each Power House). Machines of 15 MW capacity each whereas Power House No.III & IV have 6 No. (3 at each Power House) machines of 19.5 MW capacity each. The total generating capacity is 207 MW of all the 12 No. Machines.The Power Houses are situated at different reduced distances (RD’s) of the channel and located as mentioned below:-

The generating Units at each Power House can be put in service with minimum flow of 1600 cusec. The Mukerian Hydel Project generates electrical energy at 11 KV and after stepping up to 132 KV, the same is transmitted to Grid system at 132 KV. Power House No. I, is connected with Power House No.II and Power House No.II with PH No. III and PH No. III with PH-IV through 132 KV double circuit lines carried on towers. There are four 132 KV circuit lines  for evacuation of electric energy generated, two numbers at PH-II to Jallandhar (through 132 KV Bhogpur and 132 KV Tanda circuits) and other two at PH-IV through 132 KV Sri-Hargobindpur Circuit I&II.
