Here is a quick walk-around of the turbine.
And here is the charge control in my battery shed.
I am not sure if it is breaking in a little bit, but power output seems to be up a bit this morning.
As you can see in the video though, the tailwater coming out the bottom of the turbine housing is still moving pretty fast, and the jet you see through the sidewall is not deflected towards the center as much as I think would be ideal. I knew going in that a squirrel cage fan was not going to be a perfect turbine, but since it was free, and will be cheap to replace, it shows quite a bit of promise as an easy cross-flow turbine. Someday I would like to build a stainless steel version using strips cut from of 2" or 3" pipe as vanes, and space them out more and get the angles right. I would like to get the local fabricator to laser cut some plates for the ends, but I need to figure out how to get the CAD drawing worked up. Anyone here have any experience with LibreCAD?
