Hydro-electric Science Fair venture - an element of the 2015 Bing Science Fair promoNEW - A short clip of the video clip is the main 2015 Google research Fair promo. Check it task ended up being accustomed test exactly how water pressure (PSI) would affect hydro-electric production. We simulated this with finding Penstocks near the base ( higher force) and middle (reduced stress) of a 5 gallon bucket. Our hypothesis is the fact that penstock in the bottom with higher force will = greater power output We matched the inflow of water because of the outflow as well as calculated and maintained the autumn or "head" through the penstock on turbine, so water stress alone was measured. Outcomes: We handled approx 1.98v on Multimeter from bottom penstock and 1.57v from the center. Bottom penstock = .4694 PSI Middle penstock - .2347 PSI Our summary is much more PSI = more power result. Mind, or perhaps the force of falling water is established by vertically seeking the turbine really underneath the intake of the penstock. Our next experiment will likely be testing a high head vs. low mind dam for power manufacturing.
