ESTATE WATER TURBINES

‘MICROHYDRO’

With nominal outputs up to 50 kW, these units have been specifically designed as direct replacements for diesel generating sets, in that they provide a fully governed single or three phase AC supply. All are controlled using the latest versions of our award winning ‘Electronic Load Governing System’. They are similar to the ‘PICO’ Series, in that they are of modular construction, so that they can be adapted quickly and easily to fit a far wider range of site and application.

The high head ‘Hillstream’ sites are harnessed using mainly vertical shaft milti-jet ‘Pelton’ wheels and ‘Turgo’ type runners in a square casing. Highly adaptable and reliable, we have supplied these to projects around the world for over thirty years. The lower head ‘Millstream’ sites are developed using circular cased ‘Armstrong’ and ‘Propeller’ turbines. The very low head sites employ ‘Open-Flume’ or ‘Bulb-Type’ propeller turbines.

We usually fit brushless synchronous generators because it allows the plant to be operated when there is a power cut, something that is not usually possible with an induction generator. All are well insulated and able to withstand accidental over-speeds. Protection against dangerous ‘over-voltages’ associated with over-speed conditions is also standard.
