HT 610 KAPLAN TURBINE TEST SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

 

    The set is designed for studying the Kaplan 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 guide vanes direct water to the runner. Direct coupling generator with clutch is provided to simulate actual turbine generator operation. Power output at various flow rates, heads and speeds can be measured by either  dynamometer or generator output.

    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.
