Pelton turbines also know as Pelton Wheels are impulse machines which produce power using the kinetic energy of high velocity jets impacting on runner buckets. Due to their low specific speeds, their use is generally limited to high head applications.

What Is a Pelton Turbine And How Does It Works?

The Working principle of Pelton Wheel is simple. When a high speed water jet injected through a nozzle hits buckets of Pelton wheel, it induces an impulsive force. This force makes the turbine rotate. The rotating shaft runs a generator and produces electricity. Long story short, the Pelton-turbine transforms kinetic energy of water jet to rotational energy.
