About the LPS Reakt Turbine Lineup

Robust Design

The Reakt turbine uses fixed blades, and when appropriate a variable-speed drive to provide similar performance to a traditional Kaplan with but with far fewer moving parts. The family of Reakt turbines include options for fixed or adjustable wicket gates, horizontal and vertical orientations and a range of four sizes.  Initially designed for remote applications where maintenance poses huge challenges, the Reakt line has been conceived for bulletproof reliability in extreme conditions.

Intelligent Operation

A Reakt turbine can be easily upgraded from a standardized suite of components to match the best relationship of price and value at a given site. The integral control system provides operations intelligence and prognostic/health monitoring to a remote dashboard, and allows the turbine to be remotely upgraded post-commissioning.

Reakt Technical Features

SCALABLE GENERATOR
The Reakt system’s modular permanent magnet genset design allows for simple, inexpensive sizing of the unit’s rated capacity for site operating conditions.

DIRECT DRIVE
All Reakt systems are direct-drive. A gearbox is a major point of failure in traditional Kaplan-style systems.  In addition, gearing detracts from system efficiency and adds cost.

INTELLIGENT OPERATION
Onboard sensors monitor performance for system health and ongoing optimization. When the variable-speed generator is running at full load, it can cut over to synchronous operation.  This optimizes efficiency and adds spinning reserve capability, which adds value to utility plants and avails independent operators of additional economics for providing ancillary services.

WICKET GATE AND BEARING ASSEMBLY
The integrated wicket gate, shift ring and bearing assembly maximizes reliability while lowering maintenance needs. Modular integrated bearing holders accommodate standard bearings of various types to afford the user flexibility across different applications.

REAKT RUNNER
The fixed blade runner and LPS’s flexHybrid(TM) blade manufacturing technology allows “off the rack” blade customization at a fraction of the traditional cost for one-off machined blades.
