Research Institution

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will design a portable, hydrokinetic generator for use in a wide range of river environments. The generator is built from lightweight and high-strength materials with unique joints that allow it to flat-pack into a 2 m by 1 m by 0.5 m box. The generator is composed of a set of four, redundant modules that may be quickly removed from the box and deployed to any water flow greater than 0.5 m deep. Each module comes with cabling to a central power management unit in the box to be situated on the riverside. Setup of all four units for two people takes less than 15 minutes using a set of instruction cards. Once installed in a typical stream, the full system will produce up to 1.5 kW of electricity via a 24 VDC hookup cable.
