Performance Calculations

NEXUS Water Turbine Energy Output

The combined bare turbine and augmentor extract the power used to drive the generator. The following charts show estimates of power generated for two levels of technology maturity.

The red graph forecasts power generated using efficiency achieved in laboratory scale or pilot production tests. The green graph forecasts power generated by means of the system efficiency that we believe to achieve with our applied technology.

Turbine Unit Size: 50′ wide, 40′ long, 40′ tall
VAF = Velocity Augmentation Factor

Performance NEXUS River Turbine

Turbine Unit Size: 25′ wide, 20′ long, 20′ tall
VAF = Velocity Augmentation Factor
