Can please get direction on the best type. Tesla, Terry , vane or Pelton .

Good search terms are water turbine design and water turbine design calculations. The first set of search terms resulted in some excellent sites to get a good overview. One of the first hits from the second set of search terms is a very good summary of how to design several different types of water turbines for different flow rates and heads.

Your water flow rate and pressure will tell you what type of turbine is best. Expect to put some time into this, it is not a question with a quick simple easy answer.
 
Hi Thank you for your professional reply , i am not expecting an easy solution thank you.the direction , i am new to this net thing.
