Operating Principle of A Francis Turbine – TVF010

Teaching Experimental Applications (View Datasheet (pdf))

  • Identification of the components of a hydraulic system of the Francis turbine
  • Measures of all physical parameters of the turbine: water pressure, water flow, rotational speed, torque generated
  • Plotting of curves relative to turbo machines: torques, hydraulic power, mechanical power, yield, speed depending on the rotational speed for different values of the pressure and of winnowing
  • Iso-Yield on flow rate graph depending on the rotational speed.
  • Visualization of fluid movements on the gate operating ring and on the discharge diffuser
