This work aimed at the development (study, design and construction) of a bench for axial axis hydrokinetic turbines, with its power train developed by the motor-generator, the motor responsible for emulating the torque of the hydro turbine rotor and the generator with converter function the rotation movement of the shaft into power. Through this workbench, it was possible to make the studies more flexible for different hydrokinetic projects, from its mechanical design or operation, separate from its mechanical design or operation, to obtain an optimal operating point for maximum efficiency in energy conversion. This study is intended for turbines aimed at isolated communities and riverside communities located on the banks of the Guamá-PA river, places of high density of difficult systems systems, or that make the installation of photovoltaic and photovoltaic systems difficult; therefore, hydrokinetic studies have very significant importance as an alternative for energy production, as there is a great potential for a renewable energy source not only in the Amazon but in all parts of the world that propose energy sources in their rivers and oceans, for through currents and tides. The bench is composed of a microcontrolled system by means of an electrical control flow, which sends the rotor of the machine's power train to the electrical generator to the actuator (servomotor), emulating the conversion of current flows into energy, for efficiency studies. in the use of machines in different scenarios.
