Hydropower is a renewable resource that can satisfy an important percentage of global energy. The world has a huge potential of small hydro Kaplan turbine power plants. The world energy demands are increasing. In this scenario the micro hydro Kaplan power plants gains special attention. The development of micro hydro Kaplan power plants on large scale will generate enough energy for the world inhabitants. This paper presents the modeling of the runner of a low head Kaplan for a specific site. To enhance its hydrodynamic efficiency by reducing weight, shape alterations, blade angle with combination of materials
