Hydro Turbine With Vertical Blades


The renewable energy is the solution for the problems of preserving the environment and find new sources of energy for the future, in conditions of a permanent increase of consumption.

The hydroelectricity is one of the most clean and less aggressive to the environment, finding new solutions of using this potential will increase the energetically independence and will give new possibilities in the field.

The vertical blades turbine is designed in the way to use the energy of the moving water current (as rivers) and produce electricity throw a shaft connected to a generator. The blades are moved by a special made shaft at the base of their connection to holding mechanism. During the functioning when water flow throw the turbine the blades are arranged in a way that when a whole circle is made to have a bigger resistance in one way and the smaller in the way back. The turbine is a “star form” with 5 blades from 1 to 2,5 m height beginning to work from water velocity of 2m/s.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

The turbine is designed to be moved by the water and it does not need a human operator or any electronic mechanism to turn the blades, also it is easy to use it by being putted on air balloons to not reach to the river bottom. This gives an opportunity to use it in different places and cover a part of electricity needs. Also one of the innovative for the turbines will be used a mechanism to depreciate shocks and noise.

The turbine has a big efficiency with small depending on the using rate of water velocity, it just needs a continuous current generator and inverting system.

Areas of Application

This can be applied anywhere is a permanent water flow enough deep as river or under water current, especially in regions where are a lot of small rivers but it is not possible to build a dam for a common hydropower plant, because of geographical conditions or any other. This is designed to cover electrical energy needs of a house or a group of houses isolated with small consuming power, the system will work better with accumulating batteries. The power can be from 3 to 15 kW depending on geometrical characteristics of turbine and the water velocity.

Stage of Development

The turbine now is developed at the facility and testing polygon of Technical University of Moldova at the Etalon enterprise of the University.
