Energy Harvesting from Water Flow

The goal of this project was to understand manufacturability and control of a device used to generate electrical power from water flow in pipes to power sensors for smart water networks.  The team developed and tested the feasibility of a control system to optimize the amount of energy we generate to provide consistent and robust power for WATTS's needs. The work will enable access to electrical power for WATTS’s sensing devices, and will help with inexpensive and low-maintenance data collection.
