Specification Of Experiments With An Axial Turbine

  Functioning and operating behaviour of an axial turbine
  • Closed water circuit contains axial turbine, pump and water tank
  • Transparent housing for observing the stator and the rotor
  • Turbine load using the wear-free and adjustable eddy current brake
  • Valve for adjusting the volumetric flow rate
  • Force sensor to determine the torque on turbine shaft
  • Measurement of turbine speed with optical speed sensor
  • Pressure measurement on inlet side
  • Determination of volumetric flow rate using differential pressure measurement across a measuring orifice
  • Microprocessor-based measuring technique
