During selecting a penstock, it’s a crucial choice of the pipe diameter and the pressure permissible with the material. the material should be selected according to the pressure and the condition of the run also with local circumstances. HDPE- high-density polyethene pipes are a popular choice as a material for penstock. By using this material determine gives efficiency by up to 70%.
Nozzles must be designed in a way that the laws of pressure are as much as small as possible so that the coefficient of nozzle increases. To avoid the friction nozzle should be constructed with a possible largest radius.
