Pelton Hydro Turbine
A Pelton turbine is a type of impulse 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 Pelton turbine consists of a runner with several spoon-shaped buckets attached to a rotor, which is connected to a generator. As water is forced through a small nozzle and onto the buckets, it creates high-velocity water jets that strike the buckets and cause the rotor to spin, generating electricity. The Pelton turbine is designed to operate at high heads (vertical distance between the inlet and outlet) and low flow rates, making it suitable for high head hydropower plants. It is known for its high efficiency, especially at high heads, and its ability to handle large amounts of power. The Pelton turbine is commonly used in small to medium-sized hydropower plants and micro-hydro systems.
