Pelton Turbines

High Head Hydropower applications

Pelton Turbines

Pelton turbines are the most commonly used in small hydropower plants as they offer unparallel robustness and reliability along with a very wide range of efficient operation.

Pelton turbines operate in the range of 100 to 800 mWC, presenting high efficiency over a wide range of discharge rates.

  • Head 100 to 800 mWC

  • Power up to 20MW

  • Horizontal or Vertical Shaft

  • Horizontal shaft configuration from 1 to 3 nozzles

  • Vertical shaft configuration from 3 to 6 nozzles

  • Bearing Configuration:

    • 2 (Runner ovehung on the generator shaft)

    • 3 (Generator bearings & Turbine guide bearing on vertical shaft)

    • 4 (Independent generator and turbine bearings)
