Shaft Power Plant: Experimental Model

Caption: In the shaft power plant design developed at the Oskar von Miller Institute of the Technische Universitaet Muenchen, water drops vertically into a concrete housing dug into the river bed, turns the turbine of a submersible generator, and returns to the river below the dam. This photo shows an experimental model of a shaft power plant -- without the water.
