The invention disclosed herein comprises a system focusing water current into a relatively smaller diameter lumen, imparting vortical movement to the current, and directing the water vortex through an even smaller diameter lumen en route to turbine blades having long curved blades rotatable along an axis parallel with the lumen. Rotation of the turbine blades turns gearing interfacing with the circumference of the turbine assembly, to rotate a drive shaft connected to a generator.
1. An apparatus comprising a water collection component and a turbine for a hydro-electric generator system to generate electricity from water current, the apparatus comprising: (a) a housing including an upstream funnel end and a downstream turbine end and defining a lumen therebetween, said funnel end defining a constricting lumen orientable in a same direction as the water current and focusing water flow of the water current into the lumen, the housing and the lumen sharing a longitudinal lumen axis generally aligned in the same direction as the water...
