PELTON TURBINES

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of turbines for each analysis
  • Description of each hydraulic machine through data supplied from manufacturers (e.g. runner diameter D, rotational speed N and hydraulic head H)
  • Computation of the optimal diameter D given the speed N and the head H i.e. D=D(N,H)
  • Computation of the optimal speed N given the diameter D and the head H i.e. N=N(D,H)
  • Computation of the optimal head H given the diameter D and the speed N i.e. H=H(D,N)
  • Computation of characteristic curves for the full range of operations
  • Comparison of analytical results with original data from manufacturers
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)

TEST CASES

Figure 1 shows the optimal relationship between runner diameter, rotational speed and hydraulic head. The plotted data refer to generators characterised by different pole pairs.
