Water power is pressure x rate of flow ,
This is the power which is goes through a water turbine and turbine power is out put from that particular turbine ,and the turbine power will be always less than water power because of losses

A turbine system needs a turbine. There are other ways of extracting work from a head / flow of water.

Wow, that is a fun resource. Thanks for sharing. I think engineers of all kinds will enjoy browsing the very meny ways of generating power.
