Inline Turbine Assembly


Fountain Design Limited have worked with students at Lancaster University since 2009 developing versions of the in line turbine.

The basic premise is a turbine with magnets attached rotating inside a pipe with the stator coils strapped to the outside of the pipe.

The generator was quite simple and low powered (300W @ 600rpm). The loadbank took the form of a light box.

The students have tried various configurations including the latest 3 stack arrangement.

Testing at the University is on-going and FDL are considering designing a more commercial version.
