low head..... Hydro Electric Turbine
Mr. Ratnakara started the experiment of making low water head turbine on a hit and trial basis. The turbine set consists of an alternator activated by the turn of the turbine and can produce 3.5 units of electricity per hour. It can generate 60 watt of power. The approximate weight of the machine is 300 kgs.
The turbine is useful in hilly areas. The total capital requirement is also very less.
