Pelton Wheel Development Project


The effectiveness of the Civil Engineering department’s pelton wheel, as a learning tool, needs to be improved. This is to be done by showing students a visual display of the power being generated by the wheel.

The Pelton Wheel Development Project is progressing due to efforts of the team members and funding from the University of Idaho Civil Engineering Department, due to efforts by Dr. Jim Liou, and Shell. 

Team PWDP consists of three Electrical Engineering students(Kenneth Fletcher, Jennifer Jones, and Ian Haynes) and one Mechanical Engineering student (Phillip Spinden).
