Although the complex problems experienced by large industry can be solved, the world is still suffering from a lack of energy. The problem is particularly felt in developing countries where people livein villagesand requires the development of a more efficient energy sources. The more expensive and limited fossil fuel, makes hydropower become the best energy source alternative. It should be noted that the kinetic turbine that would be examined in this research is a vertical axis turbine type not a horizontal axis turbine. The reason choosing the vertical axis turbine is that the generator installation would be easier, the whole entire blade would get a boost push from the water flow, the whole turbine components installation would be easy too. In this study the kinetic turbine to be examined is a turbine with a moveable blade which is installed on a hinge between the turbine discs. The long-term goal of this research is to provide a solution for rural communities so that they can build a simple but quite reliable power plant. The research method used was an experimental method by varying the incoming flow rate, steering angle of the flow of water entering the turbine wheel and the turbine rotation. From this research an optimum result was reach for a vertical shaft kinetic turbine performance. Keywords: Kinetic turbine, vertical shaft, movable blade.
