TO TRAP ENERGY FROM SURFACE WATER FLOW
Environmental issues including ozone layer depletion have become a significant issue because of vanishing natural resources and CO2 emissions according to sustainable use of fossil fuels during industrialization processes. The Vertical Axis Waters Turbine (VAWT) is a device, simple in construction and which gives an appreciable output. Using water resource to produce electricity is a perfect option. But due to complexity of design and initial costs and also absence of a good design for a small scale energy production the small-scale water turbines are not used. One of the biggest disadvantages of water turbines is that it needs a dam to be made for the energy production that makes it expensive for the setup and also a lots of skill is required. In this project, we have proposed a new design for a water turbine which can be used both in small and large-scale energy production. The best thing in the proposed design is that it does not need any dam for the setup, it is a water turbine used to trap energy from the surface of the water flow irrespective of the flow of the water stream. This setup of new design can be used between span under the bridges, In the river wherever required kept at a distance where the flow became again laminar from the turbulence caused by the setup in water, the surface of SEA and OCEAN as it can be used even in varying direction of flow of water. There are lots of surface water turbine designs already proposed and used but the main problem with them is that they cannot be adjusted according to the varying water level. In this design, we have also proposed a mechanism that can be used for the adjustment the height of the turbine. The motive of the project is to design and optimize the design using analysis software.
