So I have been searching all over the internet trying to find some sort of pico hydro system that would closely resemble my situation. What I am looking to do is charge a 24V DC Battery. Currently I have a generator that is generating 14 watts with max continuous draw of 0.6 Amps. Or 42 Watts with a max intermittent draw of 1.7 Amps. These are minimum requirements. Currently flow goes through a 1” pipe. (this can be changed to a degree.) I have around 60 ft of Head and 45 GPM flow rate though this pipe. What I am looking to find out is what kind of Pump would work for this situation. Any help you can offer would be amazing! If this is the wrong place to post this I hope someone could point me in the right direction that would be awesome!
