The Hydropower team is not consistently at HERDS, but the project has also leveraged the space. The objective is to outline and implement a plan for an electric turbine system to provide consistent power to the Zanmi Lasante medical facilities located in Cange. Over the 2017 spring break trip, the team needed to determine the amount of excess water available from the dam in Bas Cange. To do so, the team created an orifice plate, which restricts flow to a known diameter. From these dimensions and the pressure differences in the system, the flow could be calculated. A router was used to cut the main plate out of plywood and variable plates out of plexiglass, which were then all taken on the commercial flight down to Haiti. The group, in collaboration with an equipment provider, has been able to estimate the size of the hydroelectric turbines using this data.
