The overall commitment of hydropower plants (HPP) in providing the interest for power is 1106 TWh. The issue with hydropower lies with the way that its proficiency relies upon numerous indicators which are elements of climatic, pressure driven and financial markets. Every one of these indicators again rely on pressure driven misfortune forced because of the time being used, change in energy requirements, locational interference and quality of the machine installed. As there are numerous indicators having diverse levels of impact on the execution productivity of HPP, a few indicators are exaggerated and some others stay under appraised which brings about incorrect basic leadership. The present study proposes another cross breed show in view of the Decision-Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) with the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). Also in the present investigation rank of each indicator determine by Statistical Process Control (SPC). The needs are dictated by hybrid technique in particular SPC-DEMATEL-AHP. As per the outcomes, effectiveness of turbine is the most noteworthy for impacting general productivity of HPP.

1. Introduction

In the present study introduction divided into two sections, namely Important of Topic, Review of Relevant Literature, Objective of the study and Scientific Benefits from the objective. These sections are discussed in section 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4.

1.1. Importance of Topic

An extensive model considering the impact of machine performance, climate change and urbanization is not developed until now. The main obstacle on depending upon such a model is a selection of factors which will represent plant performances as per their contribution only a selection of input indicators and using them as per their importance is not practiced till now. Moreover, specific methods are not available to identify or select the most significant factors which can adequately represent the performance of HPP. The present study tries to fulfill this gap and proposes a new method for selection of significant features for representation of plant performance.
