Search in Google.com for Pico Hydro and switch to
I have looked at many of these Pico Hydro photos, I
did the search in Google.com for images and found a lot of them, I saved as,
then opens them in my graphics program and enlarged.
The motor set-up is amazingly simple, yet as I see it
what make this works is somehow a low RPM generator is spinning with what
appears to be direct drive, and not pulley systems or ratios being worked, just
one to one, as the water spins it, it generates. Put some type of 3 dollars
reverse charger on it and you have a constant wattage or diode, voltage
regulator etc. This all is good for running lights, but it will burn up any type
of motor quick, unless put regulated or there is an over-abundance of
I am not excited about the system, the more I look,
justs seems like too much work for a Togo person, they wild not do all this
water piping connecting on a river high and bring low. They used to mine gold
this way, just wash away the side of the mountain with a big jet pulled from up
top. I tried to get a German Man in Cascade Verde, Costa Rica, who was saying he
was a PermaCulture to run a pipe like this, there was a stream above his Hostel
less than 50 meters, he was Perma-Greedy, not Perma-Culture, he just sold people
on the idea of Veggies.
I am going to try my boat in the water, water-wheel
idea, they can mass make these, and just take them to the water anywhere it
moves, plus will not clog with all the plastic and junk on the water. The idea I
have would really work good on the Amazon River or the Mekong River.
Ok, Great info, I am getting in a hydro-electric
state of mind here in Atakpame, Togo.
