Water power Ochsenhausen
How can the energy of water be used to produce electricity? Our research power plant in Ochsenhausen enables you to work on this question and will reveal to you how the potential energy of the Krummbach is transformed into electricity by the water wheel. The measuring systems will make you understand the connection between flow rates and the amount of electricity produced by the water wheel. How much energy of the water is really transformed into electricity? Is the production dependent on the weather? Are there seasonal variations of energy production? What is the relationship between the speed of the water wheel and the speed of the generator? Is there a link between the pressure in the tube and the water flow.
