HT 903 MINI HYDRO POWER PLANT
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    This is a self contained bench top unit for studying the power generation by a hydraulic turbine.

    The unit consist of a storage tank and a pump to simulate a dam reservoir, a cross flow hydraulic turbine, a generator which is connected to the turbine by a V-belt, a lamp load bank, a dynamometer, and measuring instrument.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Turbine torque vs speed at various heads and flow rates.
  • Mechanical power output vs speed for various heads and flow rates.
  • Mechanical efficiency vs speed for a given head and flow rate.
  • Electrical power output at various heads and flow rates.
  • Overall power plant efficiency at various electrical loads.
