Designing a hydroelectric water storage system for developing countries that utilizes stored rainwater for electricity generation.

Project's result

The outcome of this project was the evaluation of the idea that rainwater can be used to store electricity, be it on a small scale.

They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?

Summary

This research project primarily focuses on optimizing drainage systems for developing countries by developing a system that can generate hydroelectric power. This system relies on a tank that stores rainwater, which leads to a narrowing pipe and a turbine that drives a generator. The narrowing pipe would increase the pressure of the water to increase the flow rate enough to generate adequate power. The generator can be used to store energy in a battery that can be used to supply electricity during power outages.

Project review

“I learned how typical research paper is formatted and how to go about reading scientific papers and extrapolating the necessary information from them. In that regard it was very well organised and Polygence made it easy to structure my paper into manageable chunks.”
