Abstract
  • The data used in the design of this hydro-electric generating station was furnished by Hon. Walter M. Pierce from a survey conducted by T. R. Barry C. E. in the service of the Grande Ronde Water Co. during the summer of 1906. In the preparation of this thesis there were several important factors which we were compelled to consider. The Cove generating station of the Grande Ronde Electric Co. with which we intend to connect in parallel, transmitts power to substations at La Grande, Island City, Union and Hot Lake at 33,000 volts,- so it will be necessary to step up the pressure to meet this requirement; the power is to be supplied to the towns of La Grande, Island City, Union and Hot Lake and for the electrification of The Central Railway of Oregon. During the day, although there would be a small amount of lighting, the load will be mostly that furnished by motors; at night, the electrical energy consumed for house and street illumination would be quite large for some hours, while that used by the traction company would probably be undiminished. Upon careful investigation of natural and economic conditions entering into the design of this generating station and distributing system, the conclusion has been reached that it can be made both an engineering and a financial success.
