Kaplan Hydro Turbine
A Kaplan turbine is a type of propeller turbine that is widely used for hydropower generation. It is a type of reaction turbine, which means that it relies on the pressure difference between the inlet and outlet of the turbine to generate power. The Kaplan turbine consists of a runner with adjustable blades that are shaped like airfoils, which are connected to a rotor that is connected to a generator. As water flows through the turbine, it pushes the blades and causes the rotor to spin, generating electricity. The Kaplan turbine is designed to operate in a wide head (vertical distance between the inlet and outlet) and flow rate range, making it suitable for low to medium-head hydropower plants. The adjustable blades allow the operator to adjust the turbine's output based on changes in water flow, making it highly efficient and flexible. The Kaplan turbine is widely used in large-scale hydropower plants, as well as in small-scale micro-hydro systems.
