Abstract

This paper covers the design and fabrication of a micro-hydro turbine that is using a conventional water pipeline to generate additional home power. The process started with identifying the suitable design and then uses the standard design as reference to develop the micro-hydro turbine. The project included computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation test that was run using ANSYS CFX. Data obtained from simulation test was used to verify the actual data that obtain from confirmation test.
