Students of MIET college demonstrate the device on a “vaickal”

The students of MIET Engineering College have developed a linear hydro impulse energy converter device to generate electricity from the flowing water of small streams or rivers.  Many devices are available to generate energy from dams and big rivers in hilly regions.  However, the students of Mechanical Engineering Department of the college claim that not many devices were available to generate electricity from small streams and inlet and outlet channels for irrigation. To fill the requirement, they say they had designed small turbine to achieve the rotary motion from the linear flow of water available in rivers, streams, and canals. The wing is designed to trap the energy supplied from the flowing water.

The device, which was jointly designed by A. Mohammed Rilwan, S. Rasheed Ahamed, M. Nataraj, and S. Mohamed Suhail under the guidance of S. Renold Elsen, was demonstrated on a “vaickal” that carried water for a sugarcane field at Mathur. The device has 13 kv capacity a day. It is said to be sufficient for operating a small pump set.  Mr. Elsen, Assistant Professor, said the device was cost effective. It could be set up from the range of Rs. 6,000 in addition to power conversion and transmission equipment, depending upon the waterways and requirement. Electricity could be generated from water flowing on a small vaickal in paddy or sugarcane fields. –  Courtesy
