the source of power generation of the largest power plant

This article lists the largest power stations in the world, the 10 overall and the 5 of every kind, in terms of current put in capacity. Non-renewable power stations are people who run on coal, fuel oils, nuclear, gas, oil shale and humane, whereas renewable power stations run on fuel sources like biomass, geothermic heat, hydro, solar power, solar heat, tides, waves and also the wind. only the most important fuel source is listed for power stations that run on multiple sources.

Three Gorges Dam: The world's largest hydroelectric plant


In 2012, the three Gorges Dam in China took over the #1 spot of the largest electricity dam (in electricity production), replacement the ItaipĂș electricity powerhouse in Brazil and Paraguay. The three Gorges Dam has a generating capability of 22,500 megawatts (MW) compared to 14,000 MW for the Itaipu Dam. But, over a year-long period, each dam will generate about a similar quantity of electricity because of seasonal differences in water convenience on the Yangtze river in China limit power generation at three Gorges for the variety of months during the year.

The height of three Gorges is concerning 594 feet (181 meters (m)) and also the length is concerning 7,770 feet (2, 335 m). The dam creates the three Gorges Reservoir, that has an extent of concerning 400 sq. miles (1,045 sq. kilometers) and extends upstream from the dam about 370 miles (600 kilometers).
