Both guide vanes can be set by control levers, to which an automatic or manual control may be connected. We will start our turbine sizing using an outside diameter of 12″.

Cross-flow turbine

As the water leaves the runner, leaves, grass etc. 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.

Turblne and power extraction capacity of the cross-flow turbine A cross-flow turbine is a type of turbine that is suitable for low head high flow applications. Most turbines are run with two jets, arranged so two water jets in the runner will not affect each other. Another advantage is that it can often clean itself. Low operating costs are obtained with the turbine’s relatively simple construction.

The flow regulation is made of deflector either manual or activated by electric actuator. The water flows first from the outside of the turbine to its inside.

The efficiency of a turbine determines whether electricity is produced during the periods when rivers have low flows.

You can download this paper here: 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. Views Read Banji View history.


This paper shows that the cross-flow turbine can be unstable at certain flow rates and that cross-flow through the turbine does not always occur. This system makes the group very sturdy and reliable.

Fay titled “Some fluid characteristics of a cross-flow type hydraulic turbine”. As with a water wheelthe water is admitted at the turbine’s turbiine. Water flow through the cross-flow turbine. The turbines cross flow IREM are suitable for low-medium head, from 5 to 50 meters, and flow rates ranging from 10 to liters per second.

It is, however, essential that the turbine, head and turbine speed are harmonised. Before we get into the details as to how to size your turbine and how to determine the power available from the water jet, there are certain geometrical tjrbine that make a cross-flow turbine what it is and thereby ensure that you get close to it’s highest possible efficiency.

Design and calculations for the cross-flow turbine

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. The turbine consists of a cylindrical water wheel or runner with a horizontal shaft, composed of numerous blades up to 37arranged radially and tangentially.

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. This is probably a more frequent application than the high head low flow application for which a Pelton turbine is designed. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. This article is intended to help you build your own cross-flow turbine, also known as a Mitchell-Banki turbine.


The water strikes the turbine blade rotating the whole turbine wheel. The web site where I discovered this paper is: 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.

How much flow is available? By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. When the water leaves the runner, it also helps clean it of small debris and pollution. The remarkable thing about this design is that the water jet enters the turbine tangentially, goes through the blades of a simple circular section, crosses the inside of the turbine and impacts the blades on the other side at an angle that allows more power to be extracted from the water jet.

You can visit their web site here: Water admission to the two nozzles is throttled by two shaped guide vanes. The turbine wheels are the same diameter, but different lengths to handle different volumes at the same pressure.

This eases the installation operations and handling and improves the stability of the group.
