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, contact your dealer for more information.
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:
Upgrades you can select from the drop down list. You must order a HP version if your W/rpm is >0.7.
2” BSP threaded valves are supplied as standard unless you advise in the order comment note at checkout that you need NPT threads.
If you require a PLT manifold, camlock hose fittings, or other PLT 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.
