Abstract
Hydro-electric power is the cheapest type of electric power generation in all world, if the cost of dam is not included in the capital cost. (Sometimes dams is constructed for irrigation then hydro-electric power). Hydro-electric power is also considered to be also the easiest in installation and operation with almost negligible operation and maintenance cost. In this dissertation, because of the above advantages, an investigation to all technical features of hydro-electric power (Types of turbines, generators..etc) and also economical features (taking Roseires hydro-electric power station, as one of the major hydro-electic power station in Sudan, as a model). Also Comfar software, computer model of feasibility studies analysis and reporting, is introduced in this dissertation and an attempt was done so as to make economic analysis for three hydro-electric power projects in Sudan using this software (Roseires, Jebl Aulia and Merawi).
