Perpetual Motion Hydroelectric Generators is a system which generates electricity by using the potential energy of falling water under two circumstances, firstly for power generation and secondly for recirculation of water. These types of systems can be extremely useful in rural regions where there is a shortage of electricity as well as a limited supply of water. This paper describes the design and fabrication of a hydroelectric generator as well as a hydraulic ram pump. Emphasis is given to the calculation of power produced, discharge and the efficiency of the ram pump. The results obtained are validated with respect to standard fluid mechanics calculations.
