Rotor - mobiles Kleinst-Wasserkraftwerk
2012 - 2015 Prototype 2, 3, 4 (not pictured)
2011 Prototype 1

By flowing in a river, a wheel with 3 standing wings in the mobile water - small power station rotates like a turbine and generates electricity via a generator. Flowing water can thus be used to generate energy from renewable sources in a simple way permanently or temporarily. The hydroelectric object consists of a large tire hose (tractor) as a float, frame and shaft made of steel and tubular steel, a power generator (dynamo) and a rotor with 3 drive wings made of thin sheet metal. For locations without electricity but with rivers, the rotor can generate electricity in a simple way. All materials are available worldwide and inexpensively. Material: tubular steel, sheet steel, rubber hose, dynamo. Diameter: 1.35 m, height: 1.0 m.

It received the 2014 Innovation Award from the European Small Hydropower Association and in 2013 the empowering people Award from the Siemens Stiftung. A project in cooperation with the Hydromechnik Laboratory of the Technical University of Munich.
Research assistant: Andreas Zeiselmair.
