Goal

The goal of this project is to build a small hydro power plant to power the stuff I build. It will use a small stream that cross my property, about 10L/s and a 13m fall.

Calculations

Amount of energy

P=g*q*H

  • g : gravity
  • q : amount of water m2/s
  • H : height

In my case with 10L/s we get 1.28kW. This is a decent amount of power, but the real electrical power will be less.

Losses in the pipe

Water speed

Force of the water jet

Project paused, because I try to acquire more land to have a better setup.
