Have you investigated power generation with this turbine? Answered

If you mean the Tesla Turbine, I have made electrical power from just faucet water pressure with my Tesla CD Turbine.

For example, I have attached a Subaru blower motor and used it as a DC generator in this movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fogl6cFiOhE

I mounted a crank-type headlamp generator in this movie:

and got the turbine to charge a shake-flashlight in this one:

I used about 30 psi faucet water pressure and got about a watt or two output. With higher inlet pressures and rpm's, much more electrical output can be had from the Tesla Turbine.

Probably the Tesla CD/hard drive one.
