The initial testing of the elevation control hydraulics of our 7.5 kW prototype Poncelet waterwheel. The wheel is 3 meters in diameter, and 1 meter wide. It employs a 5:1 speed increasing belt drive. The PM generator produces maximum power at 50 RPM.
Please check out my channel. I've added more video's including one where I take the wheel out of the water for maintenance.
In addition, I have started a "GoFundMe" page for further research into increasing water wheel efficiencies and cost reductions. Any financial support would be much appreciated.
