What are the advantages of free turbine engine over gas turbine engine?

A gas turbine engine will usually yield more power by weight than a piston engine. Main downside is that it can't be throttled very well. Energy efficiency isn't all that good to start with, and will drop right down if it has to be operated outside its optimum range.

What is the theory behind generating electricity through hydroelectric power?

The main theory is that in a closed system, water at a high physical level runs downhill to a lower physical level. This water flow through the generators turbine blades induce the turbine to turn. Control of the water flow through the blades controls the speed of the turbine generator. The head pressure and volume of the water govern the size of the generator that is connected to the turbine.
