Abstract:

This proposal is for the further design, development, prototyping, and test of a Person-Portable Micro Hydropower System (PMHS). The system can be quickly and easily installed to supply electrical power to Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) operations, forward operating bases, existing water-handling facilities, and remote camps and communities. Essentially, anywhere there is flowing water, the system can be used to generate electrical power. Based on the highly-successful Phase I effort, further Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis will be performed by e-Harvest partner Lehigh University. These results will guide the development of a prototype system which will be tested, documented, refined, and made fully production-ready through the course of the effort. Essential features and specifications include a (minimum) 500W continuous output with a peak system power up to 10KW ( e-Harvest has performed extensive market analysis and commercialization studies and has determined that significant market potential exists for the PMHS and related products. The Commercialization Report section of the proposal details these markets and opportunities.
