Cross Flow Hydro Turbine
A cross-flow hydro turbine, also known as a bulbed turbine, is a type of hydro turbine used in low-head hydro power plants. It is designed to convert the kinetic energy of water into mechanical energy to drive a generator. The cross-flow turbine is characterized by its distinctive shape, which consists of a cylindrical casing with a series of radial blades, or "bulbs," on the inside. The water flows across these bulbs, which are shaped to extract the maximum amount of energy from the water as it flows through the turbine.
Compared to other types of hydro turbines, the cross-flow turbine is more suitable for low-head, high-flow applications, as it is able to operate efficiently at lower water pressure compared to other types of turbines. This makes it a popular choice for micro-hydro power plants, as well as for hydropower installations in remote locations where the available head is limited. The cross-flow turbine is also known for its low cost, reliability, and ease of maintenance, making it a cost-effective solution for small-scale hydro power generation.
