Characteristic Pelton Wheel Turbine
- High head and low discharge is a characteristic of the Pelton Wheel Turbine.
- High-head turbine: These turbines only need a small amount of water and have net heads that range from 150 meters to 2000 meters or even more. Pelton wheel turbine, as an example.
- Medium head turbine: These turbines have a net head that ranges from 30 to 150 meters, and they also need a moderate amount of water. Francis turbine, for instance.
- Low-head turbine: These turbines need a lot of water and have a net head of fewer than 30 meters. Instance: Kaplan
Pelton Wheel turbine is: _____? (A) High head high discharge turbine (B) High head low discharge turbine (C) Low head high discharge turbine (D) Low head low discharge turbine
