BLUE TEAM B

2.009 – 4 October 2007

motivation
Motivation
  • Customer: Nuestras Raices, Holyoke MA
  • Current use: drip irrigation
  • Need: electricity generation from Artesian well
design concept and sketch model
Design Concept and Sketch Model

Water Motivated Energy Conversion System:

WATERWHEEL

1. Low Cost

2. Technologically Simple

3. Fitting for Customer

critical questions
Critical Questions
  • Can we build a waterwheel to generate electricity? (Technical Feasibility)
  • If so, will a waterwheel fulfill the customer’s needs?
  • What are the constraints at the customer’s site?
what we learned
What We Learned
  • Customer’s Needs
    • Uses for electricity (power tools and batteries)
  • Constraints
    • Topography
    • Access to water
    • Full Capacity Flow rate (120 GPM) good for 1500 W
      • Farm cannot handle this rate without discharge
    • $2500 Water Discharge Fee
what we learned1
What We Learned
  • Sketch Model
    • Small-scale waterwheel works with moving fluid
    • Mechanical Difficulties
    • Design Alternatives
future considerations
Future Considerations
  • Water Discharge
  • Water Conservation and reuse
  • Adaptable alternatives
  • Economics
