In this webinar we will show how the newly developed meanline design code for Francis turbine, which has been recently developed in TURBOdesign Suite, can be used to do the initial sizing of all components of a Francis turbine from volute, stay vane, guide vane and runner.
ADT is one of ALPHEUS partners which is a €5m project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program. It will improve reversible pump/turbine (RPT) technology and adjacent civil structures needed to make pumped hydro storage economically viable in shallow seas and coastal environments with flat topography.
Within the present study a runner-blade profile for a low head pumpturbine has been developed. This paper has been presented during the 25th IAHR Symposium on Hydraulic Machinery and Systems.
