# # # #

The PowerSpout TRG is a Turgo 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. But see also twin packs below.

Specifications:

  • Head range: 2 to 30 (6.6 –100 feet)
  • Maximum flow/turbine: 16 l/s (254 gpm)
  • Minimum flow/turbine: 8 l/s (127 gpm)
  • Dimensions: 430 x 410 x 350 mm (16.9 x 16.1 x 13.8 inches)
  • Maximum power: 1200W (Standard) or 1600W (HP)
  • Maximum current rating 32 amp

Voltage

Common version available are TRG 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 TRG 200 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.

A TRG turbine comes with:

  • 4 Jets and 4 valves (2” BSP standard - NPT optional)
  • All Camlock fittings and pipe clamps for 50mm (2”) ID flexible hose connection
  • (all you need is 4 x 50mm BSP (2”) or NPT male fitted on your penstock and 6-10m of flexible smooth bore suction hose)
  • A mid-range oil filled pressure gauge
  • Manual grease fitting as standard
  • 4 metal jet supports to prevent jet sag due to pipe weight
  • 2m of 4mm2 tinned PV wire for +/-/earth
  • 2 x MC4 cable connectors
  • 4 x Tek screw fixing kit
  • Rotor packing set kit included if we consider them likely to be required
  • 4 x spare jet inserts
  • 2-year warranty

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 notes at checkout that you need NPT threads.

If you require a TRG manifold or other TRG parts to ship in the same carton with your turbine (maximum upper limit 29kg) look here.

TRG twin packs (see twin pack image above). Click here for install images

These come with none of the items listed above. TRG Twin packs are a stripped down version to give you a great $/W price in 100W band/turbine.  They ship two units in one 30kg DHL carton, so the price listed is for two identical units. For example if you select the <1600W option you will receive two TRG turbines that can do up to 1600W each (3200W in total).

Each TRG twin pack turbine comes with a reduced 1-year warranty and 4 male camlock fittings (A200) and 4 jet inserts/turbine (8 supplied in total). A twin pack order cannot be combined with any other goods on this site. If you try then you will be charged penalty freight, rather than free freight.

TRG Calculations

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.

Use the tool here to do calculations for your site and select the correct Smart Drive PMA.
