The Pelton Turbine is one of the best turbine types for hydroelectric power
generation. When the available water source has a very high head height and low
flow rate, the Pelton turbine is the most profitable type of turbine in this
type of environment. . Therefore, in the high head and low flow environment, the
Pelton turbine is the most effective, even if it is divided into two injection
streams, theoretically still contain the same energy. Moreover, the conduits
used in the two injections must be of comparable quality, one of which requires
a long thin tube and the other of which is a short wide tube. Pelton turbines
can be installed in a variety of sizes.
As a professional Pelton Turbine Generator Factory, we would like to tell you that there are already hydroelectric plants with hydraulic-grade vertical shaft Pelton turbines installed in tons. Its largest unit of equipment can be as high as 200 megawatts. The smallest Pelton turbine is only a few inches wide and can be used to extract energy from streams that flow only a few gallons per minute. Some household plumbing systems use the Pelton-style waterwheel for water transport. These small Pelton turbines are recommended for use below a head height of 30 feet (9.1 meters) or higher to produce significant power generation. Currently, depending on the water flow and design, the Pelton turbine installation site head height is preferably between 49 and 5,905 feet (14.9 to 1,799.8 meters), but in practice there is currently no theoretical limit.
