- Pelton turbine Runner: Pelton turbine also known as impulse type hydraulic turbine or Pelton wheel was developed in 1880 by Lester A. Pelton (1829-1908) of USA. The runner consists of a circular disc with a number of cup shaped blades evenly shaped round its periphery. Each blade is made by two cups whose edges are joined to form the middle of the blade. This split the jest of water in two and the shape of the cups cause both jets to reverse direction. The cups are so shaped that the angles at the outlet varies from 10 degrees to 20 degrees. (usually kept as 15 degree), so that the jest of water gets deflected through 160 degree to 170 degree. One or more nozzles could be used to supply water to the wheel. The advantage of having a double cup shaped blade is that the axle thrusts neutralize each other being equal and opposite. This type of turbine is especially suitable for high heads of water, although it may be used for lower heads as well. For low head cups made of cast iron are used and for higher head cups made of cast steel, bronze or stainless steel are preferred.
