Operating Principle of a Pelton Turbine


Operating Principle of a Pelton Turbine .

Water turbines are turbo machines utilising water power. The Pelton turbine is a type of impulse turbine; such turbines convert the pressure energy of water into kinetic energy entirely in the distributor. During the conversion, the water jet is accelerated in a nozzle and directed onto the blades of the Pelton wheel tangentially. The water jet is redirected by approximately 180° in the blades. The impulse of the water jet is transmitted to the Pelton wheel.

Operating Principle of a Pelton Turbine is a model of a Pelton turbine demonstrating the function of an impulse turbine.
