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. 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 adjustable guide vanes direct water helically to the runner.
The unit is on wheels.
Instruction manual is also included.
- 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.

|Part No.||Part Name|
|HP 008||Advanced inverter for controlling and indicating motor speed as well as for calculating motor input power. Hence pump efficiency at various speeds can be determined.|
|HP 011A||Pressure digital display instead of pressure gauge.|
|HP 012A||Torque digital display instead of spring balance.|
|HD 200DA||Water brake absorber dynamometer instead of mechanical brake dynamometer. In this case connection to the turbine with generator is by pulleys or direct coupling to the turbine without the generator.|
Sensors with computer interface unit for key data acquisition instead of analog data measuring instruments.
This includes computer interface unit with torque and pressure sensors instead of spring balance and pressure gauge.
