Abstract [en]

Hydro power is one of the oldest sources of energy used by human civilization. It has been used hundreds of years ago to turn waterwheels for different purposes such as grind-ing grains, sawing logs and manufacturing cloths. Large scale hydroelectric power plants have been being used for generat-ing electricity worldwide from the last century. There are many types of hydropower plant such as dam-reservoir base power plant, ocean tidal power plant, wave power plant and others. In this paper the use and possibility of micro water current turbine is discussed. This type of power production uses the flow of a stream to generate electricity. It does not require dam or reservoir, it only uses the free flowing water from a river or canal or any other streams. They are usually used for meeting small local demand like lighting, charging batteries and other small home appliances. They are cheap and small, and the developing countries may manufacture and im-plement this scheme to help supply the needed electricity to small communities in remote areas such as island formed in river bed. They can produce electricity if the water flow veloc-ity is greater than .5 m/s.
