This is a self contained bench top set for studying the Francis turbine characteristics under various flow rates and heads.
The unit consists of a storage tank on a steel base, a pump, a turbine, a dynamometer, and measuring instruments. The adjustable guide vanes direct water spirally to the runner.
- Torque vs speed at various heads and flow rates.
- Power output vs speed for various heads and flow rates.
- Efficiency vs speed for a given head and flow rate.
- Racing characteristics.
