  1. reaction turbine

    A reaction turbine is a type of turbine that generates power through the principle of hydrodynamic force from a fluid's reaction to the blades within the turbine. As the fluid flows over the blades and changes direction, it creates a rotational motion that subsequently spins the turbine. This rotation is then converted into mechanical or electrical energy. Reaction turbines are primarily used in hydroelectric power plants and include designs such as Kaplan and Francis turbines.
