Here is the beast in action. First the valves are mostly off. Then I zoom in so you can see the pelton wheel and the right nozzle -- the left nozzle is too much in the dark but its in there. Then I turn on the left nozzle and you can see the voltage go up. Then I turn on the right and we're at full open power without a load. Then I hit the switch and we're charging!!! If you are having trouble viewing check out The Ocean Harvest Youtube Channel (mostly videos from dungie crabbing and fishing this year, but the hydro video is there too).
