Load / dyno test turbine

  1. Nov 21, 2014 #1
    Hi Everyone, I am building a hydro turbine, I am expecting it to produce circa 4 kw possibly as high as 7 kw depending on flow. I am on a very limited budget. Please could you suggest possible means of getting load output data? I have considered attaching a heavy truck 24 v alternator and doing a simple calculation from amp output but I'm not sure I can get a big enough alternator, around 200 amp?
