There is one flowing creek near house and that water is used in my plant. So,I don't have to pay for it.

This type of turbine was the ony I could make myself. I am not sure what turbine with 'backshot' is.

That is a nice little power plant Faruk, have you tried using different size nozzles on the tap? I made a small hydroelectric power plant for demonstration purposes and experimented with different nozzles to get the most power out of the impulse turbine.


I didn't try with different size of nozzles. I thought that it couldn't have any impact at may output power. What shown you your experiment and do you think that it would be better to reduce nozzles size in my case??

And thanks for useful advices and nice words for my project. Howard snd Neil

Thank you !

In black cylinder is just AC/DC converter and simple breaker. I didn't charge any batteries because i wasn't sure if it is possible with only 4w power and pretty low voltage (about 5V). But it is en excellent idea and will try to improve my project.

If you have an advice which batteries to use I would be grateful.
