Differences between impulse and reaction turbine
|IMPLUSE TURBINE||REACTION TURBINE|
|The potential energy of water |
is completely converted to kinetic energy while striking.
|The potential energy of water is partially |
converted to kinetic energy while striking.
|The pressure of jet striking is atmospheric.||The pressure of jet striking is less than atmospheric|
|It is not connected directly with pipe.||It is connected directly with pipe.|
|Ex: Pelton wheel turbine||Ex: Francis Turbine|
|Draft tube is not required.||Draft tube is required in tailrace.|
