Powerspout PLT


Powerspout PLT

The PowerSpout PLT is a Pelton turbine which on a suitable site can produce up to 1.6kW 24/7, 365 days a year. If a larger output is required you can stack units to generate over 16kW on the same penstock and power cable.  Put each turbine in a separate shopping basket/order to avoid a high shipping surcharge. 

We can also approve them to 2kW each on sites above 110m net head and subject to special conditions.

Specifications:

  • Static head range: 3 to 160m (10 – 525 feet)
  • Dynamic head range: 3 to 130m (10 – 430 feet)
  • Maximum flow/turbine: 8-10 l/s (130 – 160 gpm)
  • Minimum flow/turbine: 0.05 l/s (0.8 gpm) at maximum head
  • Dimensions: 470 x 400 x 430 mm (18.5 x 15.7 x 17 inches)
  • Maximum power: 1200W (Standard) or 1600W (HP)
  • Common version available PLT 14/28/40/56/80/170/200/350 (the number refers to the operating voltage Vo, the runaway Voc can be 3 x higher)
  • Maximum current rating 32 amp (optional upgrade to 50 amp possible for PLT14 or PLT28 turbines)

Voltage

Common version available are PLT 14/28/40/56/80/170/200/350.  The number refers to the operating voltage, cable voltage or "MPPV".  The runaway voltage off load or "Voc" can be as much as 3 x higher.  So for example the PLT200 will work well with a grid tied inverter at 200V but may produce voltage approaching 600V when the inverter is not drawing power from the turbine.

PLT turbine comes with:

  • 2 Jets and 2 valves (2” BSP standard - NPT optional)
  • A mid-range oil filled pressure gauge
  • Manual grease fitting as standard
  • 2m of 4mm2 tinned PV wire for +/-/earth
  • 2 x MC4 cable connectors
  • 4 x Tek screw fixing kit
  • 4 spare jet inserts
  • Rotor packing set kit included if we consider them likely to be required
  • 3 year warranty on standard (under 1200W)  and 2 years on turbines over 1200W power output.
