Since at system like this can not produce more energy than it consumes


What if I connect one single turbine to some gears the turn MULTIPLE generators at twice, or more, the speed that the turbine is going would i not, with enough generators, produce more then what the pump consumes?
I could print the Arduino logo on a box of cereal and sell it as "Arduin-O's"

Eddie, the pump is *much* less than 100% efficient as is the turbine and the generator. Some, less than 50% efficient. At each step you lose energy so where does the extra come from? Wishful thinking?

I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.

Ok, but wouldn't the gears make up for the loss of efficiency? I could get gears to turn the generators who knows how many more times then the turbine
AND  multiple generators??? all with the same pumps, heck even add another turbine ...

If you don't like the laws of physics argument, try this: People have been trying to invent perpetual motion machines for hundreds of years - you're not the first to think of it. If it worked, wouldn't everyone have such a setup in their basement and the power companies be out of business?
