3 years / 2 breaches - National Hydroelectric Power Corporation's (NHPC) Lo Dam (Stage III) on the River Teesta at Reang (Kalimpong)

Comment by Praful Rao

For those interested, Cyclone AILA affected the hills of Darjeeling district between 24 -26May2009 causing widespread damage and at least 27 deaths. The three days of rain also caused the river Teesta to become a swollen dragon which devoured parts of the NHPC dams at Reang (stageIII) and at Kalijhora (stageIV).
What is of interest and concern is that this is the second time the stage III dam at Reang has been inundated by the Teesta in the past 3 years. The last being in Jul2007.

The invention of the dynamo laid the foundation to discovery of other electric power conversion instruments such as the electric motor, the alternator which uses alternating current and the rotary converter. In later years, Faraday built a rectangular rotator which consisted of magnetic field regions of opposite directions. Some of the earliest alternators were built by Lord Kelvin and Sebastian Ferranti which produced frequencies of between 100 and 300 Hz; though in 1882 J.E.H Gordon, a British electrician built large two face alternating current generators.
