If I change things without worrying about conformity with designed systems, can I improve the output?

I climbed out of the box many years ago. My first contact with the electrical industry was when I worked with my father in law, a full time electrician in the Buffalo Ford Stamping plant. But he worked as a local residential electrician for many many years, and that was where I got started.
As I worked as an electrician, I attended a local community college studying electronics communications. My mission was radio broadcast engineer. College was a blast. Communications engineer not so much. Babysitting transmitters built like Mac trucks was more boring then nuclear weapons security ... another story. Even worse, I could have made a ton more money if I had stuck with construction! My father in law was disappointed on my choice. Hindsight is 20 / 20 ...
Now, my question for the community here. I was blown away when I was told the overall efficiency of a hydro turbine was less then 18%. Anyone here heard that?
