Note: Multi-purpose Power Unit (MPPU) Components of the MH System The various components of a micro hydro installation are (also refer to Figure 1 below): a) Civil Components: Structures designed to conduct water from source to the turbine for optimum energy generation. It has several sub -components described below. The Ghatta and the Multi-Purpose Power Unit. The Ghatta is a traditional Nepalese waterwheel with a vertical axis. The water enter the waterwheel from above. The turbine is made out of wood to enable simple building and repair techniques to be used. A consequent of this design are low efficiency and power output (maximum 12 kW). THE MULTI - PURPOSE. POWER- UNIT. The MPPU was developed to be an alternative to the existing traditional water wheel and to be an alternative also to the modern water turbines (above approx. 8 h. Water Turbine Information If you are lucky enough to have a water course across your property, such as a stream, river, or if you are lucky enough to own an old water mill, water turbines are an ideal solution for providing reliable long-term renewable energy. Most sites vary considerably in flow between winter and summer, [ ].

Meier, Arter, Hydraulics Engineering Manual, part of Harnessing Water Power on a Small Scale, volume 2: Nakarmi, Bachmann, New Himalayan Water Wheels: Nakarmi, Bachmann, Multi-Purpose Power-Unit, with horizontal water turbine, Basic information: Ovens, William G., A Design Manual for Water . In a monograph, Bachmann and Nakarmi list the options for upgrading ghattas, depending on the head and flow. They put forward the design of a multi-purpose power unit (MPPU) kit that came in three easy-to-assemble modules and can be installed on the site of .   Cross-flow turbines The efficiency of the cross-flow turbine is % lower than that of larger turbine units. Lower capacity units are particularly suitable for agro-processing, while the higher capacity t The Multi-Purpose Power Unit (MPPU) is a registered trade mark. Fig. 2. Multi-purpose power unit. Fig. 3. Crossflow turbine. Impulse turbines: hydraulic head is converted to kinetic energy before water enters the runner. o Pelton turbines Reaction turbines: the runner is completely submerged and both pressure and velocity decrease from runner inlet to outlet. o Francis turbines (radial or mixed flow).
