Francis turbines

This type of turbine is regarded as the "all-rounder" and commonly used for medium heads from 20m - 150m. 

The Francis-Turbine is a type of turbine, where the water ows radial from the outside inward and sluices axial. Only the wicket gate can be adjusted, therefore it is particularly used with power plants which have a relative constant discharge.
