Hi everyone, I'm new here.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm taking electronics engineering at exeter uni and I cant find an equation for my current project.

Its to do with max efficiency from a Pelton wheel.

I need to know how much torque it will take to turn a motor (used as a generator) from stationary (zero rpm).

I think it depends on the load resistance and/or current, but im not too sure.

I should be able to measure any other variables you state.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Sean Coleman
