What is Pelton head?

Pelton Head is the height difference between where the water enters into the hydro system and where it leaves it, measured in meters. The head at the entrance of the nozzle is equal to the gross head of water stored at high altitudes minus the head lost due to friction in the long pipeline leading to the nozzle.

How to Calculate Pelton Head?

Pelton Head calculator uses Pelton Head=Velocity of the Pelton jet^2/(Coefficient of velocity for the Pelton^2*2*[g]) to calculate the Pelton Head, Pelton Head is the height difference between where the water enters into the hydro system and where it leaves it, measured in meters. Pelton Head and is denoted by H symbol.

How to calculate Pelton Head using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Pelton Head, enter Velocity of the Pelton jet (V1) and Coefficient of velocity for the Pelton (Cv) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Pelton Head calculation can be explained with given input values -> 41.99799 = 28.27^2/(0.985^2*2*[g]).

FAQ

What is Pelton Head?
Pelton Head is the height difference between where the water enters into the hydro system and where it leaves it, measured in meters and is represented as H=V1^2/(Cv^2*2*[g]) or Pelton Head=Velocity of the Pelton jet^2/(Coefficient of velocity for the Pelton^2*2*[g]). The velocity of the Pelton jet is a vector quantity and is given as the rate of change of displacement and The coefficient of velocity for the Pelton turbine is the ratio of the actual velocity to the theoretical velocity of a fluid jet.
