This is a self contained mini axial flow propeller turbine for studying the turbine characteristics with data analysis by computer.
The unit consists of axial flow propeller turbine with a dynamometer, a water storage tank, a low head high flow centrifugal pump, an interface box and input power sensors and software.
The turbine fixed guide vanes direct water to the runner. The interface box includes power supply to the sensors and motor, and a computer interface unit. It also provides interface ports to sensors and computer.
The unit is to be used with a computer (separately supplied).
- Torque vs speed at various heads and flow rates.
- Power output vs speed for various heads and flow rates.
- Efficiency vs speed for a given head and flow rate.
- Racing characteristics.
