    Hi, is there a website with a formula or table for the kilowatts capable of
    being produced by flowing water?
  2. Water power in Hp = gpm * field head in feet divided by 3960

    Water power in kW = m^3/hr * field head in meters divided by 367.5
    (from Pump Handbook, 2nd Edition, 1986, page 9.22)
