The research paper develops and implements computer aided software for the analysis of pelton turbine runner. The software design incorporates the use of Php programming language and MysQL for the data management system. Important constants and equation formulas were loaded into the database attached to the designed program. The software is design to eliminate the manual process of analysingpelton turbine runner so as to reduce stress, delay and established an excellent output. The software is capable of displaying the mass flow rate, velocity, area, diameter of jet, peripheral velocity, pitch circle diameter, specific speed & number of nozzle and the bucket development. The software shows a reasonable agreement between the results which indicates that it is free from mistakes and performs efficient faster operations which are reliable in analysingpelton turbine runner. The program is fully interactive, user-friendly and run on any operating system windows.
