URL More about Tods Corner Power Station
Tods Corner Power Station was developed to recover the available energy from the water out of Arthurs Lake Pumping Station. The power station is located on the south-eastern shore of Great Lake and is supplied with water via a 105 metre-long penstock connected to an open flume which carries the discharge from Arthurs Lake pumping station. A manually operated gate is installed at the intake to enable the penstock and turbine to be dewatered for maintenance and to control flow while filling the penstock. A draft tube valve is provided for dewatering purposes. The generator is connected to the system at its output voltage of 6.6kV via an SF6 circuit breaker and an overhead line to Arthurs Lake switchyard where it is connected to the transformer bank.
