Hi all,

I'm trying to estimate the water used/released by a hydro power station using data from another station but I'm not sure if I'm
estimating it correctly.

The data that I've from Station 1 (which I'm trying to estimate) are: Weekly Generation = 2300MWh Discharge Capacity = 1000m3/s

Data from Station 2 (which I'm using to help with the estimate) are: Weekly Generation = 30000MWh Weekly Water Used = 16GL Discharge Capacity = 200m3/s

From Station 2 data, the generation per GL = 1875MWh/GL Using Station 1 generation data, the water used = 2300/1875 = 1.23GL However, since Station 1 has a larger discharge capacity, the water used should be adjusted by 1.23x1000/200 = 6.1GL Therefore, the weekly water used by Station 1 is 6.1GL

I'm not sure if my rough estimates make sense or are there some fundamental flaws in the approach. Any feedback is very much appreciated.

Thank you.
