Abstract

As we know, hydropower generation in almost every country has been proven as a durable and efficient method of production of electricity, the hydropower type of power generation is cost efficient and can produce a good amount of electricity in need. Due to its renewability, hydropower serves almost 40% of the total energy production. Our paper is based on how few tanks, pumps, and turbines in an underground system can be used to produce energy with the rapid flow of water from the collector tank above. Basically, for the efficient working of the system, there are few sensors used for the water level check mounted in the tanks and in the pipes, respectively, for the water flow check. The whole system generation is put on the IOT which helps in the monitoring of the power generation. There are voltage and current sensors attached at the end of the system for the current and voltage sensing and marking. Thus, this system with the help of IOT and few sensors attached can give us the adequate data of the power generation
