Abstract: Paper With the correlation, relationship between different variables can be found out. The objective of research is to develop correlation between cost of canal based small hydro power scheme and rated power. For correlation development, four canal fall locations of Sakarda and four canal fall locations of Ranoli branch canal have been considered. Correlation has been developed using regression analysis, and the developed model is validated with T-test method. After designing of hydro power components, cost of small hydro power (variable) has been estimated using current market rates. Small hydro power components are designed as per Indian Standard guidelines. As a result coefficient of determination found is 0.856, which shows that there is a positive significant relation between both the variables (cost of canal based small hydro power scheme and rated power). Developed correlation is validated using T-test. T-test was carried out for confidence level of 95 % and 99 %. From the results of T-test, finally it is concluded that regression is significant and developed correlation can be use to find out cost of canal base hydro power scheme.
