Wheel Turbine is only impulse water turbine now in common use named in
honour of Sir L. A. Pelton (1829-1908) of California, USA. It is a
tangential flow impulse turbine. The water strikes the buckets along the
tangent of the runner.The energy available at the inlet of the turbine
is only kinetic energy.The pressure at the inlet and outlet of the
turbine is atmospheric.This turbine is used for high heads.
present set-up consists of a runner. The buckets are mounted on the
runner. The water is fed to the turbine, through SS nozzle with a SS
spear, by means of Centrifugal Pump, tangentially to the runner. Flow of
water into turbine is regulated by adjusting the spear position by the
help of a given hand wheel. The runner is directly mounted on one end of
a central SS shaft and other end is connected to a brake arrangement.
circular window of the turbine casing is provided with a transparent
acrylic sheet for observation of flow on to the buckets.This runner
assembly is supported by rigid MS structure. Load is applied to the
turbine with the help of this brake dynamometer so that the efficiency
of the turbine can be calculated. Pressure gauge is fitted at the inlet
of the turbine to measure the total supply head to the turbine.
