I have a problem with voltage loss (100 metres run) and am thinking of solving it by using step up and step down transformers. I have designed a floating poncelet wheel hydro power generator and will use the Windtura 750 / 3 phase alternator.
my problem is that theoretically I should be getting around 266 W at 28 A from the 3 phases. I have no way of knowing the exact voltage output when it is operating on the river.
My question is: if I use 3 single phase 1kva transformers wired for 3 phase step up at the source and the same type to be used at the load (rectifier/battery bank charge controller) .will the voltage input be crucial to the transformers?
The system will be installed in a remote river in rural Tanzania.
