Vital efforts are needed all over the world to develop micro hydro kaplan turbine used to generate electricity for domestic purpose. Due to increase of electricity tariff in last few years small hydro turbine plants become effective. Since the runner of a micro turbine plant is quite small, it has to be examined if the hub of the runner provides enough room for proper adaptation mechanism. In this paper potential height of 50 feet is assumed on basis of which main characteristics of runner blades are determined.
