Hydroelectric Generator


Hydroelectric Generator, L1-1060.00, £76.00

Hydro GeneratorThe Hydroelectric Generator (Pelton turbine with generator) enables students to see clearly how hydro electricity is produced.

If the unit is placed over the sink and a good flow of water is allowed to hit the black plastic turbine wheel enough energy is produced to light a filament lamp.

The generator is a 6V AC bicycle dynamo type.

Transmit the energy across the classroom using stepup and stepdown transformers.

Dimensions: height 195mm, width 170mm, depth 100mm.






Pelton Cartoon

To enable your students to work with the Generator at the sink you could take a piece of wood that spans your sink and cut a hole in it. The hole should be of a size that would allow the Generator to stand unsupported and the water to drain away down the sink.
