Question details

14. EXAMPLE Consider the Pelton turbine shown. The elevation difference H is 300ft. A fully roughness flow is developed along a 1000 ft penstock of 6 in diameter. The minor loss coefficient at the pipe entrance is 0.5 and at the nozzle exit is 0.004 (at the nozzle, V =117ft/s is used to compute the minor loss). Find the turbine maximum power output in hp. [hint: calculate nozzle diameter first] Reservoir surface 1.936 slug/ft3 Turbine wheel B-160 Penstock commercial steel (o.0015f)
