    Hydropolitics: the Itaipu dam, sovereignty, and the engineering of modern South America by Christine Folch (); Before the flood: the Itaipu Dam and the visibility of rural Brazil by Jacob Blanc (); The Itaipu Dam: world's biggest dam by Mark Thomas (Book). Itaipu dam is the world's most powerful dam built in Brazil in In , the American Society of Civil Engineers selected the Itaipu Dam as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. It was supposed to gener Giga Watts of electricity each year. In , the generating capacity of Itaipu reached billion kilowatt-hours (kWh), which supplied 93% of the energy.

    Where a generating station is large compared to the connected grid capacity, any failure can cause extensive disruption with in the network. A serious failure in a proportionally large hydroelectric generating station or its associated transmission line will remove a large block of power from the grid that may lead to widespread disturbances. Itaipú Hydroelectric Project. Itaipú Hydroelectric Project, power station and reservoir located on the Paraná River on the border between Brazil and Paraguay. Itaipú has an installed capacity of 12, megawatts and an annual output of 77, gigawatt-hours, making it the largest and one of the most productive hydroelectric projects in the world.

      The proposed Belo Monte project on the Xingu, a huge dam that has galvanised environmentalists and Hollywood luminaries, will flood five times less land than the year-old Tucurui dam, Brazil's. Research center established at Itaipu hydro project. The new Centre for Advanced Studies on Dam Safety on the grounds of mw Itaipu project on the border between Brazil and Paraguay houses researchers and graduate students .
