Identification

This turbine consists of an undershot waterwheel floated on a water stream using a buoyant skid, and can be anchored to the banks of the water body using cables or hinged arms. The water stream rotates the turbine and its coupled generator which generates electricity. This solution provides steady electricity generation (365 days, 24 hours) with constant efficiency.

This solution, named by Floating Drum Turbine or FDT, provides distributed generation of hydroelectricity from the water streams (canals/rivers) using an innovative micro-turbine which is registered in the WIPO-PCT system. This turbine consists of an undershot waterwheel floated on a water stream using a buoyant skid, and be anchored to the water bankside using some cables or hinged arms. By the way, the water stream makes the turbine and its coupled generator to rotate which causes to generate the electricity. This solution provides steady electricity generation (365 days, 24 hours) with constant efficiency.
