EDS LH1000 LOW HEAD GENERATOR
LH1000 Low Head Propeller Turbine
The LH1000, like the Stream Engine, is designed to operate in conjunction with battery-based power systems, in order to store electrical power for use at times when consumption exceeds generation. Power is stored during periods of low demand. When AC loads are desired, an inverter is needed to convert stored DC to residential AC power.
To gain enough head to operate the LH1000, water is channeled into a sluiceway. The turbine is mounted in a 7” opening in the sluice bottom, with the draft tube extending to the tailwater below.
The water turns the propeller, creating shaft power. This, in turn, powers the generator, producing electricity.
The LH1000 typically operates at 12, 24, 48, or 120 volts. It can be specially wound to operate at 240 volts, when necessary. Employing the same adjustable, permanent magnet generator as the Stream Engine, the LH1000 has reconnectable wiring for use at a wide range of sites.

The Stream Engine and LH1000 both employ a brushless, permanent magnet alternator that is adjustable, enabling the user to match turbine output to electrical load. It has a higher efficiency than previous alternators, and is capable of outputs over 1 kW, while requiring virtually no maintenance. These microhydro systems employ high efficiency, precision-cast parts, and non-corrosive alloys for long life and durability. A digital multimeter accompanies each turbine for measuring output amperage. These units can be used in stand-alone, or grid-tied systems.
