Numerical research of cavitation on Francis turbine runners
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017-07-13)
Francis turbines, as other hydraulic turbines, are custom-designed for nominal operating conditions specific to each power plant. However, they may need to be operated at off design flow conditions because of variable ...
Design Of A Flow Diverter Mechanism And A Nozzle For A Hydro Turbine Experimental Test Rig
(Amer Soc Mechanical Engineers, 2014)
Hydro turbines used in hydroelectric power plants need to be designed and tested according to the specifications of the specific power plant, mainly the head and flow rate. Their models also need to be tested according to ...
Model Testing of Francis-Type Hydraulic Turbines
(Sage Publications Ltd, 2017-04)
Every single turbine is custom-designed specifically to meet the requirements of a hydroelectric power plant. Performance of a designed turbine is validated, to some extent, by computational fluid dynamics simulations; ...
Experimental Determination of Cavitation Characteristics of Hydraulic Turbines
(Int Assoc Engineers-Iaeng, 2015)
A new facility for the design, manufacturing and standardized tests of model hydraulic turbines is under construction at TOBB University of Economics and Technology. The facility is one of a few of its kind, in the sense ...
