Abstract
The hydro-energetic potential of the Kalako site on the Tinkisso River in Dabola prefecture, evaluated by the spot measurement method during the month of March (dry season) is 5085.50 kW, or about 5.1 MW. This value is in the range of mini hydroelectric plants. The values of the evaluation parameters of this hydroenergetic potential at this time are: the depth of the watercourse (0.58 m), the flow velocity (1.46 m/s), the flow rate (14.4 m3/s), the drop height (60 m) and the efficiency of the electromechanical equipment (60%). Such a regular assessment of the hydroelectric potential of all waterfalls available in the country would provide a reliable database on the existing hydroelectric potential, hence the objective of this research.
