What Is The Working Principle Of Pelton Turbine?

Aug. 15, 2018

Pelton Turbine is used in the hydroelectric power plant where the water available at high head i.e. 150 m to 2000 m or even more. In hydroelectric power plant it is used to drive the generator attached to it and the generator generates the mechanical energy of the turbine into electrical energy.Let me talk about how the Pelton turbine works.

1.The water stored at high head is made to flow through the penstock and reaches the nozzle of the Pelton turbine.

2.The nozzle increases the K.E. of the water and directs the water in the form of jet.

3.The jet of water from the nozzle strikes the buckets of the runner. This made the runner to rotate at very high speed.

4.The quantity of water striking the vanes or buckets is controlled by the spear present inside the nozzle.

5.The generator is attached to the shaft of the runner which converts the mechanical energy of the runner into electrical energy.
