The PowerSpout LH is a highly efficient propeller turbine. On a suitable hydro site it 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.
Common version available are LH150/250/400 The number refers to the maximum runaway voltage, or Voc. Best operating voltage, cable voltage or MPPV will be approximately 1/2 of this Voc. So for example the LH400 works best at 200V and it should never exceed 400V. Each turbine is custom built for your site and the voltage will depend on the site head.
LH turbine comes with:
Upgrades you can select from the drop down list. Click here for install images
On heads above 3.6m you must order a HP version and use a 250mm OD draft tube.
If you require any other LH parts to ship in the same carton with your turbine (maximum upper limit 29kg) look here.
To always ensure free freight cart weight needs to be 27kg but less than 29kg.
Orders will be accepted only on advice of the saved calculation file number and the model of the PWM or MPPT regulator or grid-tied inverter you are connecting to. This information you must enter in the comment box at checkout to avoid delays in processing your order.
