ECO-INNOVATION on nine to noon

I’ve got one of Michael’s manuals here, and two smart-drive units. We’ve been thinking pelton-wheel for years – having a head of 60 ft, and a flow of 2-3 litres/sec in winter, and a can-dry-up-once-every-ten-years in summer.

We’ve succesfully spun our wheel with a stepping motor atop, and suspect 800 rpm (two old petrol-heads, pers com) .

Now we are re-configuring for a smart-drive, and looking to switch coils in and out. On-demand load change, in other words.  All good fun.

  1. Speaking of SmartDrives and power generation, when do you want to do something about your charging circuit on the microhydro?
