Abstract [en]

This study aimed to evaluate Gated Spillways and Fuse Plugs from an economic perspective. Life Cycle Cost Analysis was carried out for both these alternatives.A literature review was carried out to know more about the hydropower plants at Fortum. Various methodologies for Life Cycle Cost Analysis were investigated. Also a study was carried out to identify the Gated Spillways and Fuse Plugs to be investigated. Various costs associated with them were also identified.Data was collected from the archives at Fortum and also via communication with experts. The deterministic analysis of data was carried out using a model built in Excel. Also probabilistic analysis of the data was carried out using Monte Carlo Simulation. The final results showed that Fuse Plugs are cheaper than Gated Spillways. Also for Gated Spillways, the initial costs are higher than the various other costs throughout its lifetime. The Civil costs are also higher as compared to Mechanical, Electrical and other Miscellaneous costs.
