Kelvin Generator

“The Kelvin water dropper, invented by Scottish scientist William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) in 1867, is a type of electrostatic generator. .. The device uses falling water to generate voltage differences by electrostatic induction occurring between interconnected, oppositely charged systems.”(wikipedia)

“Lord Kelvin’s Thunderstorm is build around the concept of water droplets falling through inductors. Two streams of water fall from small holes in reservoirs at the top. Those streams fall through two metal cylinders, called inductors, not making contact with them. A stream of falling water will change from a continuous stream into individual drops at some point, if it falls far enough.“(Hackaday)
