ANALYTICAL HILL CHART TOWARDS THE MAXIMISATION OF ENERGY RECOVERY IN WATER UTILITY NETWORKS WITH COUNTER-ROTATING RUNNERS MICRO-TURBINE

Existing water utility networks provides a wide, distributed and unexploited hydropower potential. The installation of energy recovery stations on existing infrastructures limits both the required investment and the environmental impact. The counter-rotating runners micro-turbine presented in this paper is a new technology dedicated to the harvesting of energy on drinking water network. An analytical model of the machine?s efficiency ? the so-called hill chart ? is used to investigate the runners? speeds command laws that maximize the recovered energy on the wide range of consumer- driven flow discharge experienced on water utilities.
