As with a water wheel turvine, the water is admitted at the turbine’s edge. The regulating device controls the flow based on the power needed, banli the available water. Also a homeowner can more easily build a cross-flow turbine because the turbine blades turbime a simple shape compared to the complex buckets of the Pelton turbine, however you can buy a Pelton wheel only.

A cross-flow turbine is a type of turbine that is suitable for low head high flow applications. The machine is completely assembled, all the components are installed on a frame base utilized for fixing the whole group on the floor. Unlike most water turbineswhich have axial or radial flows, in a cross-flow turbine the water passes through the turbine transversely, or across the turbine blades.

Design and calculations for the cross-flow turbine

These features are shown in Figure 4. A blade is made in a part-circular cross-section pipe tubrine over its whole length. How much flow is available? The guide vanes should seal to the edges of the turbine casing so that when the water is low, they can shut off the water supply.


Its simple construction makes it easier to maintain than other turbine types; only two bearings must be maintained, and there are only three rotating elements. This system makes the group very sturdy and reliable.

This web site will give you some ideas as to how to go about it: It is beyond the purview of this article to explain how to determine this but I think that most people will be able to determine whether it is suitable to tap their water source with a 2″, 6,” or 10″ diameter pipe. Turbije regulating unit, shaped like a vane or tongue, varies the cross-section of the flow.

Tyrbine flow through the cross-flow turbine. The turbine geometry nozzle-runner-shaft assures that the water jet is effective. Particularly with small run-of-the-river plantsthe flat efficiency curve yields better annual performance than other turbine systems, as small rivers ‘ water is usually lower in some months.

Cross-flow turbine – Wikipedia

Fay titled “Some fluid characteristics of a cross-flow type hydraulic turbine”. Chiudendo questo messaggio o continuando la navigazione, si presta il consenso al turblne utilizzo. Lately, I have come across a paper by Tufbine.

Most turbines are run with two jets, arranged so two water jets in the runner will not affect each other. This article is intended to help you build your own cross-flow turbine, also known as a Mitchell-Banki turbine. After passing to the inside of the runner, it leaves on the opposite side, going outward.


The efficiency of a turbine determines whether electricity is produced during the periods when rivers have low flows. Since it has a low price, and good regulation, cross-flow turbines are mostly used in mini and micro hydropower units of less than two thousand kW and with heads less than m. The water jet angle to the blades should be 16 degrees with respect to the tangent at the point of contact more about the width of the water jet later.

When the water leaves the bnaki, it also helps clean it of small debris and pollution.

However, the cross-flow turbine has a flat efficiency curve under varying load. This article will be based on the information bani in the C.

The turbine shaft transfers the generated power to the generator by a transmission group made of pulleys and toothed belt, properly sheltered. The cross-flow turbine is a low-speed machine that is well suited for locations with a low head but high vanki. Views Read Edit View history. You can download this paper here: Water admission to the two nozzles is throttled by two shaped guide vanes.

As the water leaves the runner, leaves, grass etc. The transmission group is properly sheltered in order to keep safe the working area when the machine is running and keeps the transmission belt and pulleys clean.
