Hydro power generation through slow flow sewage water
Name of user/organization : Mr. K. Balakrishnan, Bangalore, Karnataka
Engineering / Energy Technology/Energy
It is a 35 feet long conical pipe with 4.5 ft diameter opening at suction and 7.5 feet diameter opening at delivery end. The pipe is provide with helical blades of 15 degree helix angle. First half of the pipe is provided with 12 no. of blades for proper suction.Second half of the pipe is provided with 24 no. of blades to create better torque. The whole arrangement were hinged over a suitable framework with free moving bearing. The delivery end of the pipe is coupled with suitable power transmission system and further with alternator to produce electricity .Innovator has claimed it producing 30 kVA electricity at 40 lps and 1 m head . Looking augmentation for : Design analysis and redesigning of turbine using the concept for trapping energy form slow moving sewage water effectively without difficulties in maintenance.
