Micro-hydropower turbine systems


Micro-hydropower systems make use of the natural water resource to generate electricity.

A micro-hydropower turbine operates on the principle that water passing across or through a turbine causes the turbine to rotate. The turbine shaft is connected to a generator that converts the hydropower energy into electricty.

Micro-hydropower turbine systems can be connected to the electricity supply grid or to storage batteries.
