Abstract
Water wheel is non-polluting electricity generation plants that harness the energy available in natural water sources. A channeling device is added to the water wheel to concentrate the flows energy into the turbine.
Calculations of a number of different blade and channeling device geometries have carried out by using the commercial computational fluid dynamic software Fluent.
Sliding mech model were used to compare different numbers and types of blades.
The calculations shows that 10.5 kw shaft power with about 0.66 power coefficient can be produced by using 4 m diameter water wheel.
