Micro hydro turbine is an alternative for rural electrical power generation where the some areas in Malaysia are beyond the reach of power grid. This type of turbine is much cheaper than the full scale hydro turbine. Generating electrical power from 200W to maximum 1 OMW makes this type of small turbine the option to install in rural areas that in located near highly located places where abundant storage of water supply is available. However, this micro hydro turbine design actually needs special manufacturing process which is casing that is not widely available in Malaysia and some of the major components especially the Pelton bucket have to be imported. This project is focused on the redesigning and fabricating newer design of micro hydro turbine which will be constructed in an alternative way. Therefore, several of the problems of existing machine need to solve. Several parameters are discussed and analysed in order to build the new micro hydro turbine in term of cost, material selection and manufacturing selection.
