Last quote by Alan Robinson

The theory behind hydropower is that we ultimately harness the energy available in the water, that's both in terms of the pressure in the water and the flow rate or the movement of the water. In a reaction turbine the runner is fully submerged, it harnesses the energy of the water passing through the runner, that's both in terms of its pressure and the kinetic energy available. Impulse turbines are often used on high head or high pressure schemes, they'll take the available energy in the water, convert that into a high velocity jet, which then strikes the runner, or wheel.
