Water turbines are turbomachines 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., the Kaplan turbine is used as a “classic” water turbine in runoftheriver power plants.
The AFF067 helps to investigate the characteristic behaviour of a simpleregulated Kaplan turbine during operation. The trainer is provided with a closed water circuit with tank, submersible pump and throttle valve for adjusting the flow rate. The angle of attack of the rotor, And thus the power output of the turbine, are changed by adjusting the guide vanes. The turbine is loaded with a wearfree eddy current brake.
The speed is captured by means of an inductive, noncontact position sensor at the turbine shaft. For determining the turbine power, the eddy current brake is equipped with a force sensor for torque measurement. The pressures at the inlet and outlet of the turbine
