Description of Kaplan Turbine Test Set
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. The adjustable guide vanes direct water to the runner. 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 unit is on wheels.
