If you would care to share the fundamental properties of your invention, though, I would be happy to help you with the calculations.
Quoted this one of the many because of a similar but different question.
Forgetting the water wheel for a moment and if it were a flywheel (of sorts) and a small solar powered electric motor were driving it, say 1kW -1,25kVa - ~1.35hp (simply a base figure that makes for easy math) what would be the limit on the size of the pump it could drive. A 75mm / 3"?
I know it's a bit like "how long is a piece of string" but following Newtons 2nd the 1kW should be the governing factor? Or not?
