Turbine efficiency analysis was done for design and develop the quality of turbine. It also necessary for realize that the purchased turbine can generate the power exactly to the designed value. The turbine efficiency evaluation normally was done by model test which consume a large number of budget. Turbine efficiency analysis by using Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) technique can save these wasted budget. This study was performed to analysis the turbine efficiency of the pelton turbine of MAE SA NGA Hydroelectric power plant in Mae Hong Son Province, Thailand. The efficiency at 100 % load was 92.90 % by CFD and 91.36% by site test. The difference of the efficiency between CFD and site test was 1.2 %. It shown that the CFD technique can be used for analysis the turbine efficiency instead of the model test.
