Abstract

Water is a main role in our daily life since a long time ago. Based on the analysis of renewable energy in Malaysia, river water is one of potential to generate electrical energy. The research and development system of river water on progress because it highest cost and details information data to develop in big scale. The aimed of this project is to construct and develop the system by turbulence energy harvesting of river current with the available scale. The objective project focus on the potential surface area of river water. System components are reviewed and include turbine, electrical generator, gearbox, controller, converter, and battery bank. Among several turbine designs reviewed, a helical cross-flow turbine is selected, due to its self-start capability, ability to accept inflow from any direction, and power performance. The aspect of overall project present about how the potential of turbine position (either horizontal and vertical position) and the number of blades performance with their actual ability of Gorlov's turbine to fix as a performance system to generate electrical energy by current water river. Besides that, to promote the renewable energy, environmental friendly and commercialize water river as a sources of electricity generation. To describe the implementation result and discussion of the research, the simulation done with software such as SOLID WORKS SIMULATION, AUTOCAD PSCAD, MATLAB and CA THIA CAD and the data comparison recorded. The expected outcome of the project is to develop and construct the system that can generate electricity from river current or turbulence energy harvesting system. Based on the comparative study on the energy generating performance, the suitable system can applied to the real life and suitable for users. This system might become as generator to backup power for power supply to get the benefit from the energy of environment. This research project can be used as a reference to other researchers for improvements to existing systems, or develop a system that similar in concept for the next.
