    Design and analysis of portable hydrokinetic turbine which can operate in both air and water and powering the requirement of a single household.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    In northern hilly areas of Pakistan, water flow decreases in winter effecting hydrokinetic turbine functionality. To ensure uninterrupted power supply throughout the year, we aim to design a hybrid horizontal turbine which will generate electricity using both air and water.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   In Northern hilly areas where water freezes in winter, our hybrid turbine will produce electricity using water flow in lakes in summers are in winters, when water is frozen, it will use wind energy to produce electricity.
How will the solution works
    - The turbine comprises of rotor(blades), transmission system, generator and electric system.- The blade design is most important feature. It works in a way that when turbine is in contact with water, it produces electricity using kinetic energy of moving water waves. When water will be frozen in winters, wind turbine will be working and wind energy is converted into power. - The turbine has a convertible design. It can be converted from wind to water turbine and vice versa.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In Pakistan, our idea has no competitors. It is an innovative solution which adresses the areas where water freezes in winters and hence, the water turbines there are unable to produce electricity. We aim to make a compact, portable and small scale hybrid turbine that powers one household.
