Pelton turbines are used in hydroelectric power stations to transfer kinetic energy from water to an electrical generator. Pelton turbines are ‘green’ and form part of the renewable energy power generation sector.
Unlike Francis and Kaplan turbines, the Pelton turbine is an impulse type turbine. Commercial applications for the Pelton turbine are restricted to geographical locations where a large head of pressure is available; this is the main reason why they are not as common as Francis and Kaplan turbines.
