development of hydro power converter for very low head differences

Project Aims


The project HYLOW has the following aims:

1.    To develop and prove cost-effective and ecologically acceptable energy converters for very low head differences (0.5 to 2.5 m) with power ratings from 50 to 750 kW.

2.    To develop a free stream energy converter for river and tidal currents with velocities from 1 to 2 m/s, and power ratings of 5 to 500 kW.

3.    The development of an energy converter to utilise low pressure differences in pipe systems.
