Hydropower production
by means of hydraulic turbines

Hydroelectric turbines The hydraulic turbine is that mechanical device that transforms the potential and kinetic energy of water into mechanical energy. It essentially consists of a fixed member called the distributor and a movable member called the impeller. The first has three essential tasks:

it directs the incoming flow to the impeller by giving it the due direction, regulates the flow by means of partialisation devices, causes a partial or total transformation into kinetic energy of the pressure energy possessed by the flow.

The extent of this transformation is the most important element for the classification of turbines: when the transformation from potential to kinetics takes place completely in the distributor, we speak of action turbines, otherwise of reaction turbines.

Finally, the impeller transforms the potential and / or kinetic energy of the water into mechanical energy rendered on the motor shaft.
