Straight-Flow Micro HPS with a Constant Magnet Generator


It is intended for utilizing potential energy of small river waterways or industrial water systems with a net head from 3 to 8 meters and capacity from 3 to 12 kW with a water flow 0,13- 0,23 m3/s. Such power unit is autonomous, ecologically pure energy source. It doesn’t need a constant presence of attending personnel during its operation. Themain elements ofmicro HPS: watermotor, electric generator, electronic frequency and voltage regulator. The power unit is an axle free propeller straight flowturbine, on an impeller rimofwhich rare-earth constant magnets Nd-Fe-B are placed. Electronic frequency and voltage regulator is intended for producing 3-phase voltage Uф = 220 V, frequency 50-60 Hz.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

Comparison of the developed micro HPS characteristics and series-produced Tomik (public corporation “Turboatom”, Kharkov) with close characteristics are cited in the table. Advantages of the developed model: mass is two times less and considerably miniaturized overall dimensions that provides thrice-repeated reduction of specific metal content. Efficiency diapason is 10-20%higher and generated power accordingly. Advantages stated in comparison with typical analogues will be saved and improved during power increase of micro HPS unit.

Areas of Application

Potential places of application and consumers: hydro-power engineering facilities, water supply systems and drainage systems of industrial enterprises, big and individual farms. Installations of such type can be effectively used in distant from electricmain areas, they aremobile and characterizedwith low transport expenses.

Stage of Development

Experimental model of micro HPS has been developed and produced. It passed bench tests at IPMash NAS of Ukraine (Kharkov). Nowadays environmental and fatigue tests are being carried out in Prielbrusye (Russia). Ukrainian patent is used in this development.
