Pelton Wheel Power


pelton wheel power
    pelton wheel
  • A common impulse turbine runner—the wheel that receives the water, changing the pressure and flow of the water to circular motion to drive an alternator, generator, or machine. Pelton wheels (named after inventor Lester Pelton) are made with a series of cups or “buckets” cast onto a hub.
  • The Pelton wheel is among the most efficient types of water turbines. It was invented by Lester Allan Pelton in the 1870s. The Pelton wheel extracts energy from the impulse (momentum) of moving water, as opposed to its weight like traditional overshot water wheel.
  • Advanced form of water wheel
    power
  • The ability to do something or act in a particular way, esp. as a faculty or quality
  • The capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events
  • possession of controlling influence; "the deterrent power of nuclear weapons"; "the power of his love saved her"; "his powerfulness was concealed by a gentle facade"
  • Political or social authority or control, esp. that exercised by a government
  • supply the force or power for the functioning of; "The gasoline powers the engines"
  • (physics) the rate of doing work; measured in watts (= joules/second)
pelton wheel power - The Micro-Hydro
The Micro-Hydro Pelton Turbine Manual: Design, Manufacture and Installation for Small-Scale Hydro-Power
The Micro-Hydro Pelton Turbine Manual: Design, Manufacture and Installation for Small-Scale Hydro-Power
Micro-hydro is a useful way of providing power to houses, workshops or villages that need an independent supply. For many remote areas beyond the reach of a national grid, micro-hydro is the only economic option. Where flow is limited, but high heads are available, the Pelton wheel is one of the most useful turbines.

The "Micro-hydro Pelton Turbine Manual" is written to enable the reader to design and manufacture Pelton turbines with capacities from a few hundred watts to around 100kw, though much of the information is relevant for larger units too. Aimed at readers with a general engineering workshop background, the emphasis is on simple technology, so that the turbines can be made in small workshops with basic engineering facilities. More advanced processes are discussed for those with access to better manufacturing facilities. As well as detailing all the important aspects of design, the book covers basic theory, turbine selection, manufacture, installation, testing and problem-solving. The manual is well illustrated and contains many comprehensive appendices, which include manufacturing reference information and the derivation of equations used.

These wheels where the primary way to produce power and compressed air in the remote areas most mining operations where set up in - taking full advantage of the abundant water resources.

Not sure if its public art per se but it is pretty cool. Used from 1924 to 1986 in the one of the central NI power stations.
