Modern 12 volt car alternators put out 12 VDC at 50 to 70 amp. Truck and bus alternators put out higher current.
Use a car alternator and design your turbine for the RPM required by the alternator.
A 1 inch diameter pipe and a 10 foot head of water doesn't seem to be enough energy to obtain 750 watt. (My assumption without doing any calculations)
