RENEWABLE ENERGY

Kinetic Hydropower

• The energy possessed by a body because of its motion
• The amount of energy depends on the mass and the velocity of the moving body
• Kinetic turbines create energy from flowing water with no head requirement

 

Turbine Overview


1. 3 fiberglass- reinforced rotor blades (Apoxy)
2. Underwater generator
3. Diffusor (HDPE*)
4. Floats
5. 4 anchor points
6. Stabilizing ring


 

Turbine Specification

• Nominal output: 5.0 kW at 2.75 m/s
• River speed: until 3.0 m/s
• Dimensions (LxWxH): 1850x1740x1970 mm
• Rotor diameter: 􀗎1000 mm
• Rotor speed: 90-230 rpm (closed circuit)
• Weight: 360kg (incl. floats)

 

Power Curve of Generator


Cost Effective Technology

• No special infrastructure necessary
• Baseload capability requiring little battery
• Low installation costs
• Low operation costs
• Scaleable from a singular turbine to hundreds


 

Environmentally Friendly

• No changes to river bed
• Slow turning generator (fish friendly)
• Replacing diesel thereby reducing C emissions
• Minimal audible disturbance
• Minimal space requirement
• Removable at any time

Market Segments

• Decentralized electrification
• Agriculture / irrigation canals
• Hybrid (grid connected / microgrid application)
• Temporary supply
• Expansion of existing hydropower stations (i.e. in outflow canals, etc.)

1) As water enters the cavity, it displaces air which rushes out through air turbine

2) As wave passes the cavity it creates a vacuum pulling air in through air turbine
