Abstract

A hydraulic turbine is a mechanical device that converts the potential energy associated with a difference in water elevation (head) into mechanical work. Modern hydraulic turbines are the result of many years of gradual development. Economic incentives have resulted in the development of very large units (exceeding 800 MW in capacity, i.e., two orders of magnitude larger than their wind counterparts) with efficiencies that are sometimes in excess of 95%.
