Recently, many studies have been done to look for renewable energy sources such as kinetic energy from marine or fluvial currents. In its utilization, water turbine plays an important role for taking energy from water current. One of the water turbine types is Cross Flow Water Turbine (CFWT). The performance of the CFWT depends on its geometry. Unfortunately, its geometry is very difficult to be measured using conventional measurement because it has complex geometry. Hence, a non-conventional measurement system based on image processing is proposed in this study to deal with the measurement difficulty of the CFWT geometry.
