A design for a Pelton Turbine with suitable dimensions, offers higher generation of energy, however, some of these dimensions are underappreciated because of their low influence. Therefore, this study presents through a recompilation of data, and four simulations developed in ANSYS 18.1®. The importance of taking in count each parameter of the geometry of a Pelton bucket, analyzing in this work the influence ofthe splitter angle in the force generated by a bucket. Four geometries of a Pelton bucket are developed with splitter angles between 17 and 21°. The most suitable angle is determined, finding through the simulations that the geometry of 17° generates moreforce than the other geometries.
