I had to laugh when your axe head came off. This has happened to me just too many times, boyo. I had even worse luck with a sledge I was using to break apart several layers of concrete. I was letting the sledge hammer drop with way too much force and the steel sledge came off, even tho' it was epoxied into place. I spent a lot of time, cleaning it out and reinstalling it properly. Once I had it all assembled, I got maybe four strokes outta' the thing...and then the ash handle just up and shattered. So I had to replace the entire handle. It takes whatever it takes. You've got a real set setup there; I'm envious. Thanks for sharing.

Aren't you concerned about doing all this work with wood? Is the lumber at least treated? (Doesn't really look like it...) I'd hate to go through all that time, effort & personal labor just to have it rot in a year or two...

keep out the metal parts from waterfall 24 hours. the mechanical transmission and use some tech for anti corrosive. as i see it will sufer oxidation add 5 year approx. i could work more than 30 years. don't need a lot of inversion. to make it more durable.

Hi my friend! Greetings from south east Asia here. Can I ask you some questions related to micro hydroelectricity and wind turbines?
Joe Malovich
Joe Malovich Месяц назад
+monkeywyk it's easiest to compared to water. With a valve shut volts is like pressure. With a valve open and water flowing watts is like pressure x flow which is power.
monkeywyk Месяц назад
+Joe Malovich 33 volt or 33 Watts? Until now I Still cannot under the different between voltage and Watts sad. :.. (
Joe Malovich
Joe Malovich Месяц назад
+monkeywyk you can store the power in batteries, or if you have enough power available you can run it at a fixed voltage and frequency and use power directly from the turbine.

Could you not probably benifit from a extra motor but without a single gear cog use insted a bicycle back end cog on another motor connected to the drive chain from the first motor and check to see if you could increce the V/C/A on the output and insted of stalling the motor by making a short circuit the backend of the bicycle cog can be used to carry on the genoration with another motor. I just had a thought might or might not work who knows. or a car alternator. with the same method?

Hi Joe! I don't know if I already asked, but... Here is how I would do it: First: I reroute the stream, so I can dig a hole deep and wide enough so I could put in a 10000 gallon rainwater tank and dig a trench for the 3 or 4 pvc pipes (for equal pressure for the pelton wheel) in a concrete casing in an angle downwards with a ball valve or better at the end. You could add 3 more smaller pvc pipes, to generate electricity, if you don't want to use magnets on your big generator, but magnet wire around a coil for both stator and rotor, like an alternator in a car. Second: put stainless steel mesh on the top of the rainwater tank, use big rocks to prevent debris from falling in. Then remove the bypass so the stream can start filling up the tank and then take the usual route. I don't know the conditions of the stream in the winter, whether or not water is completely frozen, but 10 feet below the ground, it's not below 0°C, the water doesn't freeze in the tank. certainly not when you insulate it with rockwool and then wrap plastic around it so it stays put and dry. Then downstream, you must have a way better waterflow this way and you just have to calculate how much water you need from the stream to keep them both optimal. Nobody will see it's there, so nobody will complain, and you have the benefits :-) Yes, it's costly, but you can also do it in concrete, that doesn't cost that much, just a lot more effort. This project takes so much time and effort and it will always have room for improvement, but what will be more costly in total, trial and error, or use my way where you will almost always have a constant flow and pressure of water. You'll have 240 volts that way with better generators and a pelton wheel. If you use the pelton wheel to drive a flywheel first, you might even be able to get 400 volts out of it. 40KW should be doable I think. think big :-) just make sure nobody can see it for the least amount of complaints :D

Put the nut on without the washer to begin with, do it up and it will pull the head of the other end in. Then unscrew the nut, put the washer on, and return the nut. ruvid.net/video/%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE-aVQ8g8iZeCI.html

Sorry guy . The wheel is to small . Once you apply a load on the generator its going to slow down the wheel. In the pring dig it out and make the paddle wheel a lot bigger and the water needs to ha e a longer drop . Drop it thru a pipe. And you should be good to go . Only wish I had a water flow like that in my yard
Mike Kelly
Mike Kelly Месяц назад
Evident by the extreme splash and reverse flow of the water at the top of the wheel demonstrates why the 11:00 impact point is important from the efficiency perspective. Use all the flow by adding some flashing along side of the wheel and trough in a manner all water flows the direction of the wheel. Additionally, the water splash is eroding the river bank and in a few days, maybe hours (so we are now talking historically it probably already happened), the bank will cave and the entire water wheel assembly will be downstream. Indeed the use of a 12 volt regulator of some type will increase the available current. However, knowing what your load (resistance) would be will tell if your generator is robust enough to deliver what you need. Did you conciser using an AC brush-less stater motor-generator? AC will travel via wire more efficiently and better utilize the gravity fed waterfall energy. Better than using an inverter indoors to create 120VAC from 12VDC.

With that high a flow rate and wasting that much water over the top of the wheel I would suggest deeper and wider veins which would result in higher energy efficiency, equaling a higher output. Just a thought. Great job so far!

Your flowing over the top...flow to 3 o clock...you have points where the water(LOADS!) is landing on the up coming scoops = negative energy , drag ,dead bloody useless weight lol . Hitting 3 'o clock scoop , rotating clock wise!!! will stop this..you'll see a gain without a wheel change..as your wheel is diverting the flow of the lower scopes backwards against the flow of the water in the stream at water level...ie your pushing the water backwards and forwards... Bottom scoop is trying to force water back up stream while water flowing over the top scoop is landing and flowing downstream as you intended....lower scoops in the water needs to GO WITH THE FLOW 🤪👍👍

Funny how you make so much stuff harder on yourself. One example is you using a c clamp to "pre bury" a bolt? OK why didn't you just put the nut on it and tighten it down without using a washer? Or just don't use a washer period if you don't have a long enough bolt? It's not the end of the world without a washer
Joe Malovich
Joe Malovich 3 месяца назад
I tried that, didn't work. And I need the washer because the pressure treated wood was super soft, the nut would have just been buried.

Would it serve better to gear your system to increase torque as oppose to rpm. Rpm increase your voltage but you haven’t much torque so there should be some sort of happy balance between torque and rpm correct ?when there is a load especially...also shouldn’t the water flow to the side of the wheel?
Joe Malovich
Joe Malovich 4 месяца назад
It's a necessary trade-off, I needed a minimum voltage to be useful. Not sure what you mean water off the side.

To put power production in perspective a bit... Assuming you could get 10 watts of power out of your generator, you'd have to operate it for 100 hours or four days to generate one kilowatt hour of power, which you get charged perhaps ten cents for from the power company. It really sucks trying to compete with the power company!

I think you were picking up some drag at the bottom of the wheel. Also not making full use of all that water which was spilling out at the top. Might be better using a 8inch soil pipe and driving the water through a proper turbine blade like on hydro electric dam. That way you'll get the weight of all that water over the height adding to the energy. Most of the energy you have available is being lost down the slope, albeit it being converted into some kinetic energy but not a lot.

Joe - everything you have done is fantastic. The most fantastic thing is that YOU have DONE it. Currently working on a windmill of my own design. My main concern is that your new property will not give you such wonderful nature to take advantage of and you may lose your interest in your search. You must certainly have caught the fire in your heart the moment you first saw your wheel turn under the force of nature.
