Description of Kaplan Turbine Trainer

Water turbines are turbo machines which convert water energy into mechanical energy. Mostly, they are used for driving generators for power generation purposes. The Kaplan turbine is a reaction turbine with an axial through flow. It has a high specific speed and is suitable for large water flows and small to medium heads. Therefore, the Kaplan turbine is used as a “classic” water turbine in run-of-the-river power plants.
