generate your own electricity
in cooperation with the Hydromechanics-Laboratory of the Technische Universität München
The rotor was developed, analyzed and tested by Andreas Zeiselmair at the Hydromechanics-Laboratory under the supervision of Dr.-Ing. Christoph Rapp in 2011. The design is originally used for wind turbines and driven by lift force but also runs underwater. This vertical axis water wheel can produce electricity with an integrated dynamo / generator up to 2 kW depending on flow velocity induced by the river flow.
In June 2011 the rotor was successfully tested in the river Loisach close to Munich, Germany
