Hydro-electric power generating system

Image Number 9 for United States Patent #7262517.

A hydroelectric power plant for use in flowing bodies of water is described which includes a new spillway canal constructed to enhance the flow of water by increasing the water pressure. Because the canal has the angled feature on both ends, the water flow can be enhanced when backflow conditions exist as well as when primary flow conditions are present. In addition the canal utilizes a unique combination of both traditional and Pelton type water wheels to convert the water pressure to electric power. The canal, the extensions and both types of water wheels are also adjustable in nature to maximize the amount of power obtainable from any given body of water.
