New Stainless Turgo Runners for Microhydro Builders

A larger, higher power turgo runner size is now being produced by Hartvigsen-Hydro of the USA and Cargo & Kraft of Sweden.

Hartvi

gsen-Hydro together with Cargo & Kraft are now offering precision cast turgo type turbine runners and buckets suitable for use with nozzles up to 50 mm (2 inches). These turbine buckets are cast from a high tensile strength stainless alloy and are suitable for higher power micro hydro installations to low end small hydro. Complete custom runners start from 720 USD. Turbine bucket sets are also sold separately for 24 USD each. These turbines are a 150% scaling of the popular orange turgospoons.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
