Analysis the Performance for Runner Pelton Turbine by Using Bamboo Material
Keywords:Performance, Runner Pelton Turbine, Square Nozzle, Round Nozzle, Water discharger
The potential of hydropower that can be utilized in Indonesia is quite abundant and cannot be utilized optimally until now. While the government has targeted the use of renewable energy in 2025 by 23% along with an emission reduction of 29% in 2030. This research is conducting experiments with the aim of analyzing the performance level of Turbine Pelton Runner rotation speed using bamboo material. The turbine design is made with two different models between square nozzle made of bamboo material and round nozzle made of copper. The results showed that bamboo material designed with a square nozzle to rotate the Turbine Pelton Runner can produce a higher speed of 794.4 rpm than a round copper nozzle of 663 rpm. Increased Turbine rotation will produce higher electric energy. The potential for water discharge at the time of testing was quite large so as to produce electric power reaching 150 kW. The square nozzle designed from bamboo material to rotate the Turbine Pelton Runner is the latest in this article. Overall Turbine rotation performance for all three tests showed a significant improvement.
