The two main types of reaction turbine are the propeller turbine with Kaplan variant and the Francis turbine. The reverse Archimedes Screw and the overshot waterwheel are both gravity turbines.
There are two main types of hydro turbines: impulse and reaction. The type of hydropower turbine selected for a project is based on the height of standing water—referred to as "head"—and the flow, or volume of water, at the site. Other deciding factors include how deep the turbine must be set, efficiency, and cost.
The impulse turbine generally uses the velocity of the water to move the runner and discharges to atmospheric pressure. The water stream hits each bucket on the runner. There is no suction on the down side of the turbine, and the water flows out the bottom of the turbine housing after hitting the runner.
An impulse turbine is generally suitable for high head, low flow applications. A pelton wheel has one or more free jets discharging water into an aerated space and impinging on the buckets of a runner. Draft tubes are not required for impulse turbine since the runner must be located above the maximum tailwater to permit operation at atmospheric pressure. The Turgo runner is a cast wheel whose shape generally resembles a fan blade that is closed on the outer edges.
The water stream is applied on one side, goes across the blades and exits on the other side. A cross-flow turbine is drum-shaped and uses an elongated, rectangular-section nozzle directed against curved vanes on a cylindrically shaped runner.
It resembles a "squirrel cage" blower. The cross-flow turbine allows the water to flow through the blades twice. The first pass is when the water flows from the outside of the blades to the inside; the second pass is from the inside back out. A guide vane at the entrance to the turbine directs the flow to a limited portion of the runner.
The cross-flow was developed to accommodate larger water flows and lower heads than the Pelton. A reaction turbine develops power from the combined action of pressure and moving water. The runner is placed directly in the water stream flowing over the blades rather than striking each individually. Reaction turbines are generally used for sites with lower head and higher flows than compared with the impulse turbines.
A propeller turbine generally has a runner with three to six blades in which the water contacts all of the blades constantly. Picture a boat propeller running in a pipe. Through the pipe, the pressure is constant; if it isn't, the runner would be out of balance. The pitch of the blades may be fixed or adjustable. The major components besides the runner are a scroll case, wicket gates, and a draft tube. There are several different types of propeller turbines:.
The penstock bends just before or after the runner, allowing a straight line connection to the generator. A Francis turbine has a runner with fixed buckets vanes , usually nine or more. Water is introduced just above the runner and all around it and then falls through, causing it to spin. Besides the runner, the other major components are the scroll case, wicket gates, and draft tube. Kinetic energy turbines, also called free-flow turbines, generate electricity from the kinetic energy present in flowing water rather than the potential energy from the head.
The systems may operate in rivers, man-made channels, tidal waters, or ocean currents. Kinetic systems utilize the water stream's natural pathway. They do not require the diversion of water through manmade channels, riverbeds, or pipes, although they might have applications in such conduits. Kinetic systems do not require large civil works; however, they can use existing structures such as bridges, tailraces and channels.
Skip to main content. Types of Hydropower Turbines. Terms used on this page are defined in the glossary. Pelton A pelton wheel has one or more free jets discharging water into an aerated space and impinging on the buckets of a runner. Cross-Flow A cross-flow turbine is drum-shaped and uses an elongated, rectangular-section nozzle directed against curved vanes on a cylindrically shaped runner.
Propeller A propeller turbine generally has a runner with three to six blades in which the water contacts all of the blades constantly.
Bulb Turbine The turbine and generator are a sealed unit placed directly in the water stream. Straflo The generator is attached directly to the perimeter of the turbine. Tube Turbine The penstock bends just before or after the runner, allowing a straight line connection to the generator.
Kaplan Both the blades and the wicket gates are adjustable, allowing for a wider range of operation. Francis A Francis turbine has a runner with fixed buckets vanes , usually nine or more. Kinetic Kinetic energy turbines, also called free-flow turbines, generate electricity from the kinetic energy present in flowing water rather than the potential energy from the head.

The work produced by a turbine can be used for generating electrical power when combined with a generator. Moving fluid acts on the blades so that they move and impart rotational energy to the rotor. Early turbine examples are windmills and waterwheels. Gas , steam , and water turbines have a casing around the blades that contains and controls the working fluid. Credit for invention of the steam turbine is given both to Anglo-Irish engineer Sir Charles Parsons — for invention of the reaction turbine, and to Swedish engineer Gustaf de Laval — for invention of the impulse turbine. Modern steam turbines frequently employ both reaction and impulse in the same unit, typically varying the degree of reaction and impulse from the blade root to its periphery. A working fluid contains potential energy pressure head and kinetic energy velocity head.
According to this invention it is proposed to construct the drum or portion of the shaft carrying the various blades in a combined impulse and reaction turbine of uniform di ameter, or nearlv so, over the entire length occu ied by the inganges. The subdivision of the reactionturbine is calculated in such a manner that the two opposed end pressures resulting therein counterbalance each other, and the shaft of the turbine is therefore freed from end thrusts. The impulse-blades are continued until that portion of the turbine is reached at which the full etlect of the actuati which Ira bying fluid on the blades is obtained. In the accompanying drawing. By means of the arrangement described it is possible to have a smooth drum for all the ,blades in common and of c ual, or nearly equahdiameter throughout, w iich drum may be easily produced from a tube of suitable material, such as wrought-iron or the like. Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States of America, is.
When moving blades are driven entirely by the impact of an external jet impinging upon them, they are known as impulse blades. When the fluid in the moving.
When a spindle designer begins a new product design, as a speed increaser for metal cutting applications, he may choose any of a few popular options in order to introduce power: electrical motor, mechanical gear, or turbines. The turbines are low cost and provide relative high rotation speeds. There are two types of turbines: fluid water, oil, emulsion and gas air, nitrogen, steam. The turbines may also be categorized according the following: impulse and reaction turbines. Reaction turbines have the same operation principle as rockets.
The main differences between Impulse and Reaction turbines are, all hydraulic energy is converted into kinetic energy by a nozzle in the Impulse turbine and whereas In Reaction turbine Only some amount of the available energy is converted into kinetic energy. Before moving to further detailed explanation lets have some overview of Impulse and Reaction Turbine. Note: At the bottom of every article the PDF link is attached make sure if you want you can easily download. The impulse turbine changes the velocity of the water jet. The jet impinges on the turbine curved blade which changes the direction of the flow.
The main difference between Impulse and Reaction turbine is that the Impulse turbine works at atmospheric pressure and Reaction Turbine works at above atmospheric pressure. I have listed a total of 21 points on differences for you easy to understand.
A steam turbine is a device that extracts thermal energy from pressurized steam and uses it to do mechanical work on a rotating output shaft. Its modern manifestation was invented by Charles Parsons in The steam turbine is a form of heat engine that derives much of its improvement in thermodynamic efficiency from the use of multiple stages in the expansion of the steam, which results in a closer approach to the ideal reversible expansion process. The first device that may be classified as a reaction steam turbine was little more than a toy, the classic Aeolipile , described in the 1st century by Hero of Alexandria in Roman Egypt.

А метод грубой силы? - предложил Бринкерхофф. - Можно ли с его помощью найти ключ. Джабба всплеснул руками.
Ты понимаешь, сколько стоит эта штука. Любое правительство выложит любые деньги. Можешь ли ты представить себе, как мы будем докладываем президенту, что перехватили сообщения иракцев, но не в состоянии их прочитать.
Рог aqui, senor. - Он проводил Беккера в фойе, показал, где находится консьерж, и поспешил исчезнуть. Фойе оказалось помещением с изысканной отделкой и элегантной обстановкой. Испанский Золотой век давным-давно миновал, но какое-то время в середине 1600-х годов этот небольшой народ был властелином мира.
Через шестьдесят секунд у него над головой затрещал интерком. - Прошу начальника систем безопасности связаться с главным коммутатором, где его ждет важное сообщение. От изумления у Джаббы глаза вылезли на лоб. Похоже, она от меня не отвяжется. И он решил не реагировать на сообщение.
Канадец. - Да. Он вызвал скорую.
Чатрукьян еще раз обвел глазами пустую лабораторию и нахмурился. - Где же он, черт возьми. Глядя на оживающий монитор, он подумал, известно ли Стратмору, что в лаборатории систем безопасности нет ни души.
