Water resources are one of the natural sources for
producing electricity on earth. Hydroelectric power plants are
constructed for producing electricity through these resources.
These power plants convert potential energy of the water to
kinetic energy by means of using their turbines in order to
Water flowing through the wings of these turbines causes it
to rotate hence generates electricity. Our goal is to use the same
amount of water to generate a vortex, in other words allow flow
of water so that constant force is applied at each wing and thus
increase the rotation force.
Our system is a prototype of a hydroelectric power plant but
the rotation of the turbine is designed in a way to allow vortex
