1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hey everyone, trying to finish up a report and having a problem with getting to the final answer. It is a final report on hydro kinetic energy. We are planning to install a hydro kinetic turbine under a bridge and calculate what the energy output would be in KW. I am getting lost in the conversions and hoping someone can take a look at my math and tell me where there could be potential errors. 2. Relevant equations Our Velocity is 1.65m/sec Flow rate past the turbine is 20.75m3/s I have calculated the flow rate loss past the turbine and plotted a graph from 50% to 3% V2 = V1x = x m/s The next step we took was to find Hr = (V1^2 - V2^2)/2g With Hr, we then solved for Pa = Hr*p*Q And finally, we are now at the step of our efficiency (35%) = Pout/Pa The issue is talking with our teacher we are getting some rather large numbers and it doesn't seem correct.
