In the tanks, which characterize these types of installations, there are pressure reducers, which, in this case, have been replaced by a Pelton IREM turbine served by a by-pass which has been inserted on the current pipeline, before the pressure reducer. pressure.
In this way it is possible to exploit the pressure of the existing system to produce renewable energy and feed it into the electricity grid.
The project is characterized by a pressure of 9 Bar and a flow rate of 100 l / s.
The machine chosen is a Pelton IREM turbine model TPA with generated electrical power of 72 kW, equipped with fully automatic flow regulation through 6 on / off jets to adapt to variations in the system.
