Water is one of the natural resources that can be utilized for energy, starting with potential energy can be converted into kinetic energy, where the kinetic energy can be utilized as mechanical energy in the turbine work system, and the water discharge conditions greatly affect the turbine power. Therefore, this study varied the height of the reservoir to change the amount of water discharge and observed its effect on the turbine power of impulse water with alternating blades. The reservoir used in this study had a volume of 0.2 m3, and the outlet diameter was 0.055 m, while the aiming turbine had a diameter of 0.18 m with a type of impulse with alternating impulse. At the reservoir height of 0 m the water discharge is 0.008m3/s and produces power of 37.040 W, while when the height of the reservoir is raised at 0.40 m the power generated by the turbine also increases to 92,236 W. When the reservoir height is raised to 0.89 m the turbine power is 192,987 W. To conclude, condition shows that the height of the reservoir is directly proportional to the turbine power, it means if the reservoir gets higher,ultimately the turbine power will also increase.
