What are the disadvantages of electricity generation?

High cost of designing and building nuclear power station.

  • Waste in the form of used fuel rods which are very hot and highly radioactive.
  • Hot water discharged causes thermal pollution to the environment.
  • Risk of accidents which may lead to the leakage of large amounts of radioactive substances to the environment.
  • What is power generation using speed breaker?

    Abstract: Electricity is generated by replacing the usual speed breakers with some simple mechanism. As vehicles pass over the speed breakers, rack and pinion mechanism works and with the help of high tension springs in turn generate electricity.

    How does power generation work?

    In a turbine generator, a moving fluid—water, steam, combustion gases, or air—pushes a series of blades mounted on a rotor shaft. The force of the fluid on the blades spins/rotates the rotor shaft of a generator. The generator, in turn, converts the mechanical (kinetic) energy of the rotor to electrical energy.

    What are the pros and cons of electricity?

    Our two most used forms of electricity are Electrical Energy and Fossil Fuels….

    Pros Cons
    Is reliable. Runs through power lines, which are everywhere. Is a steady source of power. Comes from both renewable and non-renewable sources. Can be very dangerous. Causes pollution. Is affecting Global warming.

    What are the disadvantages of speed bumps?

    Increased Noise and Vibration One of the few major drawbacks of speed bumps of any kind is that they often increase perceptible road noise. Vehicles passing over speed bumps are simply louder than those that are cruising down a level surface at a consistent speed.

    Why do we need speed breakers?

    Speed bumps or speed breakers are important for road safety. A speed breaker is anything that can slow down your vehicle’s speed. At times when we find ourselves speeding, we tend to slow down when we realize that there is a speed breaker ahead, and that probably helps to save our lives.
