What is the head of a hydro turbine?
It is a vertical height measured in metres. The two diagrams below show how the head would be measured on a typical ‘low head’ and a typical ‘high head’ site. The more head you have the higher the water pressure across the hydro turbine and the more power it will generate.
What is a hydraulic head?
In its simplest form hydraulic head is a measurement of the height of a static water column above an arbitrary point, usually expressed in meters (or feet in the US). The higher the water level or hydraulic head, the more energy that the water at a specific location has.
What does high head mean in hydropower?
High Head. Head differences of 100 meters or higher are considered high head. In this type of plant, water travelling through the turbine comes from a significantly higher elevation, meaning that the system needs a smaller volume of water to produce an equivalent amount of energy.
