HT 410 CROSS-FLOW TURBINE TEST SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    This set is designed for studying the Cross Flow turbine characteristics under various flow rates and heads.

    The unit consists of a storage tank, a pump, a turbine, a dynamometer, a generator, and measuring instruments. The adjustable nozzle direct a water jet tangentially to the runner. Power output can be measured by either dynamometer or generator.

    The unit is on wheels.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • 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.
  • Overall turbine-generator efficiency.
  • Racing characteristics.
