Abstract [sv]

Den här rapporten är ett resultat av ett examensarbete i ämnet maskinteknik med inriktning bistånd genomfört vårterminen 2010. Arbetet är ett samarbete med den svenska organisationen Ankarstiftelsen, som har bistått studenterna med kontakter i Leticia, Colombia.

Arbetet har varit förlagt dels i Sverige och dels i Leticia, Colombia och har bestått av en förstudie i Leticia samt en litteraturstudie. Målet med arbetet har varit att ta fram ett förslag på lämplig placering och val av turbinsystem, utifrån de förutsättningar som finns i området.

Rapporten presenterar olika metoder för elproduktion i Amazonasregionen, turbinsystem anpassade för strömmandevattenkraft och resultat från förstudien.

Rapporten presenterar ett förslag där en turbin av modellen Darrieus installeras på en ponton vid samhället Milagrosa. Turbinen beräknas i dagsläget täcka det elbehov som finns i samhället. Dock kvarstår finansieringsfrågan.

Abstract [en]

This report is the result of a thesis project in mechanical engineering with focus on development assistance, completed spring term 2010. The work is collaboration with the Swedish organization Ankarstiftelsen, which has assisted the students with contacts in Leticia, Columbia.

The work has been taken place in both Sweden and Leticia, Colombia. A literature review was carried out in Sweden and a pilot study in Leticia. The goal of this work has been to develop a suggestion on a proper placement and selection of turbine systems, based on the parameters that have been encountered.

The report presents various methods of electricity production in the Amazon region, turbine systems suitable for hydrokinetic power and the results from the pilot study.

The report presents a suggestion where a Darrieus turbine is installed on a pontoon close to the community Milagrosa. The turbine is expected in the current situation to cover the electricity needs of the community. However, the funding issue still remains to be solved.
