In this modern age, everyone depends on electricity. So, the global energy demand is increasing rapidly. For covering this huge demand, the amount of power plants like gas, nuclear, steam, coal, diesel is increasing. This kind of power plant emits greenhouse gas and other materials, which is harmful to the environment. Moreover, the storage of coal, fuel, and methane gas is decreasing day by day. This kind of resource will end soon. The Gravitational Water Vortex Power Plant (GWVPP) offers a variant energy source that can resolve the energy demand. Low head hydropower has been one of the main focuses in recent years. GWVPP is already remarkable for low head, is environmentally friendly, and cost-efficient. So, for developing countries, it is very suitable. In the GWVPP, water enters a basin with the help of an inlet. For the shape of the basin and gravitational force, it creates a water vortex. The energy is generated from the water vortex by the rotation of the turbine. This project is an attempt to underline a theoretical and experimental understanding of GWVPP. The governing equation is the Navier-Stokes equation. The project includes the design of two different basins of different shapes, the capacity performance characteristics of the basins have been compared to understand the strength of water vortex, understanding flow rates and their effect on the strength of the vortex to generate more power, the size of the outlet diameter, and its effect on the vortex. Comparative analysis has been done to find the most optimized design.
