Simple, and cheaply made water turbine. The 36 cups are made from 7 cm diameter PVC-pipe and bolted onto a bike wheel. In this particular video, the wheel is not connected to any load, and the thread and the pulleys only shows a way to transport the power away from the wheel. Hope you enjoy, and thanks for watching.

We have any waterfall we can do like this but we don't have any waterfall , we can use to 12 volts car Dianama for battery recharge after we connect inverter it will be product normal AC power 240v OK ( you are not showing it's all because you don't know about this)

What if you started at the top of a tall tube under a large water fall and as the water fell it passed by bladed attatched to small highest end motors with the least resistance possible 12/25/18 obviously the bearing or uninvented or possibly modification on a preexisting theory or actual object im un aware of as im an idiot who cant comprehend how we can except basic laws. Im not the only one. Then after passing by a motor the water woud slow so u increase the pipe for long enough for the load to build up enough to reduce the pipe diameter to match the original flow and repeat and make adjustments if possible or here is where i challenge the mind instead of relying on new water we then at the bottom and someone obviously much smarter then I created the worlds most effecient pump that could draw 99.99999 percent of the energy collected and used it to start the process over again. I realize how outlandish this sounds but i dare the scientific community using a actual model to prove that perpetual energry will never be achievable in this manner. I know why dont i do it myself because im not a physicist nor a designer with high mathematical skill. I just wonder and putting it out there. Its basically a child hood dare to scientist. Or for lack of fancy wordology due to me be busy in other aspect with my hands but my mind is gready and whats someone else to do the hard work . Im just a bad idea man. Questioning old laws that seem correct but can be manipulated

Great! Thumbs up! With a little water and enough pressure to spray from a nozzle, I thought about using tin cans not quite cut in half and pried open. Carefully cutting up one side and top of a can leaving the other side uncut and bending open the can to make two halves-- a "do-it-yourself pelton cup" Fastening a bunch of these homemade "pelton cups" around something which could be fastened directly to the shaft of a generator/alternator. With a generous spring or stream with a little more water and with a bit of drop to build pressure, I thought of taking 20 lb propane tanks and filling them with water to be sure there is no propane in them and then emptying the water and taking a right angle grinder with a cut-off wheel and cutting the propane tanks lengthwise, leaving one straight side uncut. When opened up this would make a large pelton cup. Done to about 8 or more propane tanks. Taking two steel automobile wheels and welding them together, then welding the opened propane tanks around the wheels making a large pelton wheel. The center of one of the 2 wheels welded together would need to be cut out to be able to get a ratchet in to tighten the lug nuts of the other wheel to a junked automobile hub/axle. Similar to this ruvid.net/video/%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE-BtCMuO3DVyE.html Or instead of using the hub/axle of a junked auto, weld the propane "pelton wheel" to a large steel pipe and fit each end of the pipe through a large pillow block bearing.

The next thing I would recommend is that you have some sort of housing for the string or chain so that it doesn't come of easily. :) Also, if you could have a gear system so that you could get one revolution on the turbine to make 10 on the dynamo or something like that. Try it out and see what works :D

How do you make a turbine like that plz it's for a science project
Audun 3 года назад
+Jordan Witter There isn't really a recipe i can give you. The details is mostly covered in this video and in my replies to previous comments. The base is a bike wheel with cups from PVC on it. That is basically it. In addition there is the pulley that is just a ring of plywood fastened to the wheel and finally a stand for the turbine to be placed on. Good luck and have fun building a water turbine! Best.

just changing the angle of the water drop would increase speed .you are slowing it down by comming straight out
Audun 3 года назад
Hi. I haven't meassured the power. Sure, a preassure nozzle would increase rotational speed. A pelton turbine would be better for higher pressure. This wheel has more torque than speed. Thanks for watching!

This is great! Think I'll build one to take camping. It would probably produce enough power to run several strings of LED xmas lights. Running a hundred feet or so of PVC pipe up the crick (a small creek, in hick speak) and putting a nozzle on the end would up the water velocity.

You lug all that stuff with you and spend the whole weekend getting it set up and then take it all down to lug it back without generating a watt of power.

Great job! I think you really should attach a washing machine motor directly to your wheel, so that you don't lose energy through friction in your long thread. I like your wheel though, great design!

Love the simple design! Can you take a few close up pics of the components of the wheel such as cups and how they are cut and mounted?
Audun 4 года назад
I don't have this turbine up and running anymore. The cups was made by cutting pvc pipe in two. They are fastened to the wheel by bolts. Holes are drilled in the rim of the wheel. I have tried hot glue in the past, but the cups kept falling off. Thanks for your comment. Have fun.

Audun 4 года назад
You would have to connect the wheel to a generator in some way. Different methods are used. Some use direct drive, others use a belt-drive. This is also convenient if you would like to have a gear ratio. Good luck on your project.

at39degrees 5 лет назад
I like this idea, and have thought of something similar. I was going to use rivets to attach the cups but maybe bolts would last longer. My only concern is that when you do attach a generator/alternator to this, the load of creating electricity will make it much harder to turn initialy. you may have to help it get going, and you may need bigger cups and a larger amount of water, to keep it going. Maybe not though. Depends on the draw of the generator. I was going to leave the bicycle sprockets on the wheel and use bike chain to turn the generator

Hi. This was just a fun design testing project, so i haven't done a proper speed test. I don't think it is that fast though. Maybe 5? All the cups, makes it look very fast. Thanks for the comment. Take care.
