Turbine Selection

There are many engineering solutions which can be used to generate hydro power.

In order to select an appropriate technology, you will need to know the following parameters of your hydro site: a hydraulic head and a flow rate. At this stage you should have been aware of these values.

If you have not done this preliminary research, please look for the information which is available in Section 1 on Hydraulic Head and Flow Rate.

Please enter the following information:

Head (m):
Flow Rate (m3/sec):




Please make sure that you are using the right units.
