Turgo type single nozzle Hydro Turbine 1.1KW

Model No:XJ22-1.1DCT4-Z
Output/Power:1.1 kw
Rated Head:16 – 22 Meters
Rated Flow:8 – 10 (l/s)

XJ22-1.1DCT4-Z is an AC direct system consisting of a turbine-generator unit producing AC power which is used as needed. That is, it is fed directly to the appliances. No need for a battery and inverter, XJ22-1.1DCT4-Z offers a complete water-to-wire system with an integral Turgo turbine, generator, and valve flow control. Designed to deliver ready-to-use 115V/230V VAC power, it employs a brushless, special rare-earth permanent magnet alternator and therefore has a higher efficiency than an ordinary alternator. Output voltage and frequency are controlled by the electronic load controller(with ballast). As little as 8 to 10 liter per second (l/s) falling 16-22 meters through a pipe can supply enough power to comfortably run a small household. This machine is compact, easy to install, and requires little maintenance except lubricating the bearing every few months.

The Turgo turbine was designed for families in remote areas to produce power for their households easily and inexpensively. These units have been incredibly successful and today thousands are installed throughout the world. These turbines need very little water flow to run efficiently and produce significant power out. The standard configuration uses one nozzle.

Water is collected upstream from the turbine and channeled in a pipe down to the turbine location. At the turbine, the water passes through a nozzle, where it accelerates, strikes the turbine runner, and turns an AC single-phase brushless permanent magnet alternator. An electric load controller is built on the alternator which stabilizes the voltage to 110V or 220V to protect electrical appliances during use. Installation is very simple and explained in the manual. Once installed there are no running costs and maintenance costs are very low.

If you feel you may have a suitable site, please email specific information on your actual site. The information that is required for a preliminary assessment is:
1. The volume of water flowing in your stream, expressed as liters per second.
2. The head (height of drop) of the falling water, expressed in meters.
3. The length of the penstock (pipeline) in meters.
