Impulse turbines

Suitable water head range:

The impulse turbine is mainly composed of Nozzle, Runner and Housing, through Nozzle, the water with hydro energy was completely changed to free jet with full Kinetic energy, which impulses the runner to transform the hydro energy to mechanism energy.
Impulse turbines can be divided into Pelton turbine, Turgo turbine and Cross-flow turbine according to the different jet impulse ways for runner.
The suitable water head for Turgo turbine: H=25-300m, its characteristic is the jet out of nozzle impulse the runner in the direction of 22.5 degree to the runner gyration level.
