Abstract

Hydroelectric power generation is one of the most popular among the renewable energy. The purpose of this paper is to observe the performance test of Turgo impulse turbine. The turbine power is 500 W and the permanent magnet generator is used .The proposed runner diameter, runner speed and number of blade are 262 mm, 461 rpm and 20. Performance tests are conducted by changing the jet angles (10°,20° and 30°) at Renewable Energy laboratory in Mechanical Engineering Department. According to the test results, the maximum turbine power, generator output power and turbine efficiency are 635W, 475W and 81% at jet angle 20°.

Keywords
