Water turbine

  1. Jul 30, 2009 #1
    I have a question regarding a hydraulic pressure with embedded water turbine mechanism.
    The hydraulic cylinder contains two cylinder barrels of different diameters. For example the top cylinder barrel has a diameter of 20cm and 2cm for the bottom one. They are inner liquid connected. If the top piston is pushed inward for 1mm, the bottom piston will be pushed outward by 3cm approximately.
    I am wondering if a reaction water turbine is installed in the bottom cylinder barrel, will the moving fluid get the turbine runner rotating under the condition that the top piston is pushed in and pulled out for a once?
    And where can I find a water turbine with such small size?
    I do really appreciate if someone can help me and give me an explanation!
