DISCHARGE OF GIVEN ORIFICE METER

Aim:

To determine the coefficient of discharge of given Orifice meter.

Apparatus Required:

1. Orifice meter

2. Differential U tube

3. Collecting tank

4. Stop watch

5. Scale

Description:

1.

Header tank with flange assembly to fit the orifice installed in the vertical plane of the tank

side.

2. A vertical sight glass (piezometer) fitter with the tank to record the water level in the tank.

3. A constant steady supply of water with a means of varying the flow rate by using by pass

valve.

4. A traveling distance point gauge to measure the co-ordinates x and y.

5. Deliver tank with piezometer to measure discharge through the orifice.

Theory:

An orifice may be defined as an opening provided in the side or bottom of a tank for the

purpose of discharge. It should be noted that the opening will be considered as an orifice only when

the level of the liquid on the upstream side is above the top of the orifice. The purpose of an orifice

is to measure the flow. An orifice of area a provided in the side of a tank. Let H be the head of the

liquid above the centre of the orifice. The liquid stream discharged by the orifice is called a jet. The

liquid particles approach the orifice from all direction and after passing through the orifice the jet

contracts and reaches a minimum sectional area at certain section is called as vena contract. The

distance of the vena contract from the orifice is approximately equal to half the diameter of the

orifice. The stream lines of flow are converging up to vena contract and beyond this section the

stream lines are parallel.

Experimental Procedure:

1. Measure the diameter d of the vertical orifice. Admit the water supply to the header tank and

for conditions allowed to steady to give a constant head H. Measure the head of water H

above the centre line of the orifices.

2. The co-ordinates at the vertical jet are observed on the scales of the traveling distance gauge,

by touching the jet from the pointer of hook then after a reasonable distance along x-axis

where there is a stream line flow, a section of jet is chosen and on similar lines, co-ordinates

of this section are measured. After deducing the initial readings of the co-ordinates of vena

contract from the final readings, the vertical and horizontal distances of the section chosen

are found out. From this, the coefficient of velocity can be calculated by the above mentioned

formula.

3. Collect the water discharging from the orifice in a measuring tank of known dimensions and

measure the rise of water level in the measuring tank for certain period of time t sec. from

these values the coefficient of discharge can be calculated. Coefficient of contraction can

also be obtained dividing Cd with Cv.

4. The above readings are repeatedly taken for different constant heads and are tabulated.

DISCHARGE OF GIVEN VENTURIMETER

Aim:

1. To find the coefficient of discharge of the given venturimeter.

2. To find the coefficients k & n in the rating equation.

3. To find the loss-coefficient K

Apparatus Required:

1. Venturimeter

2. Stop watch

3. Collecting tank

4. Differential U-tube

5. Manometer

6. Scale

Theory:

A Venturimeter is a device which is used for measuring the rate of flow of fluid through

pipe line. The basic principle on which a venturimeter works is that by reducing the cross-sectional

area of the flow passage, a pressure difference is created between the inlet and throat & measurement

of the pressure difference enables the determination of the discharge through the pipe.

A Venturimeter consists of:

1. An inlet section followed by a convergent cone,

2. A cylindrical throat &

3. A gradually divergent cone.

The inlet section of the Venturimeter is of the same diameter as that of the pipe which is

followed by a convergent cone. The convergent cone is a short pipe which tapers from the original

size of the pipe to that of the throat of the Venturimeter. The throat of the venturimeter is a short

parallel side tube having its cross-sectional area smaller than that of the pipe. The divergent cone of

the venturimeter is gradually diverging pipe with its cross-sectional area increasing from that of the

throat to the original size of the pipe. At the inlet section & at the throat, of the venturimeter, pressure

taps are provided through pressure ring.

Venturimeter provides a construction in the flow area which produces an accelerated flow.

Consequently, there will be a fall in static pressure. Hence, the measurement of drop in static pressure

provides an accurate measure of the flow rate in the pipe. The application of Bernoullis Equation

between the inlet section and the throat section and the use of continuity equation leads to the

following expression for the flow rate.

Description:

The unit consists of three venturimeters of various sizes according to the diameter of various

pipes.

Each pipe is having the respective venturimeter with quick-action valves for pressure

tappings. The pressure tappings of the meters are connected to a common middle chamber, which is

in turn, connected to a differential manometer. Water is let from the mains to the pipes through a

gate valve and water from the pipes can be collected in a collecting tank.

Venturimeter is the device for measuring flow in pipes. It is used for measuring rates of flow

in both incompressible and compressible fluids.

The value of Cd , is less than unity vary from 0.95 0.99 for Re >105. Venturimeters are not

suitable for very low velocities.

Practical Applications:

Venturimeter is commonly used for measurement of flow through pipes. Venturies are also

used in industries to measure the flow rate of gases and liquids. It is used for measuring rates of flow

in both compressible and incompressible fluids.

having y-axis intercept log k. Thus from that straight line, the values of k & n can be determined.

2. To calculate the pressure difference between the inlet and outlet of the rotameter.

Apparatus Required:

1. Rotometer setup

Description:

A rotatmeter is a device that measures the flow rate of liquid or gas in a closed tube.

A rotameter consists of a tapered tube of glass with a float inside that is pushed up by flow

and pulled down by gravity. At a higher flow rate more area (between the float and the tube)

is needed to accommodate the flow, so the float rises. The float is shaped so that it rotates as

the fluid passes. The top edge of the float is compared with graduations on the glass to

measure the flow rate of the fluid.

Rotameter is commonly used for measurement of flow through pipes in closed circuit.

Procedure:

1. Open the valves corresponding to the given rotameter.

2. Adjust the control valve kept at the exit end of the apparatus to a desired flow rate

and maintain the flow steadily

A closed circuit of any cross-section used for flow of liquid is known as a pipe. In

hydraulics, generally, pipes are assumed to be running full and of circular cross section. Liquids

flowing through pipes are encountered with frictional resistance resulting in loss of head or

energy of liquids. This resistance is of two types depending upon the velocity of flow.

1. Viscous Resistance and

2. Frictional Resistance, due to different diameters.

The viscous resistance is due to the molecular attraction between the molecules of the

fluid. At low velocities, the fluid appeared to move in layer or lamina, and hence the nature of

this flow is termed laminar flow or Stream line. If the velocity of the liquid is steadily increased,

at certain velocity termed as the lower critical velocity the parallel bands of liquid will become

wavy. On further increase in the velocity these instabilities will increase in intensity until a

velocity corresponding to the upper critical velocity is attained. The region of flow bounded by

the lower and upper critical velocity is attained. The region of flow bounded by the lower and

upper critical velocities is termed the transition zone. For all further increase in velocity of flow

the streamline remains in a diffused state and the nature of this type of flow is termed turbulent.

In this case the flow is restricted by the friction between the liquid and the pipe surface which

is known as frictional resistance.

DEFINITIONS:

Laminar Flow:

A flow is said to be laminar, when the various fluid particles appear to move in layers

(or lamina) with one layer of fluid sliding smoothly over an adjacent layer. Thus in the

development of laminar flow, the viscosity of the fluids plays a significant role. Laminar flow

occurs when the viscous forces predominate over the inertial forces; it has been generally

accepted now that if Reynolds number is less than 2000, laminar flow is sustained in pipes.

Laminar flow is characterized by low velocity, narrow boundary and high viscosity. The loss

of head due to friction (hf) is directly proportional to velocity (V) in laminar flow through pipes

i.e., hf is proportional to V.

Turbulent Flow:

haphazard or disorderly manner that results in rapid and continuous mixing of the fluid particle.

It is characterized by high velocity and low viscosity. Turbulent flow occurs when inertial

forces predominate over viscous forces; and generally turbulent flows are considered to occur

in pipes at Reynolds number more than 4000. The loss of head due to friction (hf) in turbulent

pipe flows varies as Vn, where, V is the velocity of flow and n varies from 1.72 to 2.0.

Transitional Flow:

The state of flow in between the laminar and turbulent flow is called as Transitional

Flow. That is, for pipe flow at Reynolds number between 2000 and 4000, transitional state of

flow prevails, which is a region of uncertain behavior. As change of state of flow cannot be

abrupt, the transition from one set of flow to another alternates back and forth between laminar

and turbulent, within the range of Re from 2000 to 4000.

Reynolds Number:

Reynolds number signifies the relative predominance of the inertia to the viscous forces

occurring in a flow system. Thus it is the key to decide whether a flow is laminar or turbulent.

It is defined as the ration of inertia force to viscous force and is given by, Reynolds number,

Re = Inertia force / Viscous force. Or

Re = V D /

(for circular pipe).

Where, V = average velocity of flow.

D = Diameter of pipe.

= kinematic viscosity coefficient of the fluid = 1 x 10-6 m2 / sec.

It may be pointed out that Reynolds number is a function of boundary geometry and for

non-circular conduits, it is given by Re = VL / , where L is a characteristic length defining the

boundary geometry.

Critical Reynolds Number & Critical Velocity:

The concept of critical Reynolds number and critical velocity is used to distinguish between

the regions of laminar, turbulent and transitional state of flow.

Critical state is occurs when flow changes from one state in to another. Lower critical Reynolds

number for flow of fluid in pipes is of greater importance as it indicates a condition below

which all turbulence entering the flow from any source will damped out by viscosity and thus

sets a limit below which laminar flow will always occur.

Experimentally, the value of lower critical Reynolds number has been found to be

approximately 2000 for flow through pipes.

Upper critical Reynolds number and upper critical velocity are the limiting Reynolds number

and limiting velocity above which the flow will always be turbulent, that is, it marks the upper

limit of laminar flow. The upper critical Reynolds number is indefinite, being dependent upon

initial disturbances affecting the flow, shape of entry to pipe, roughness of the boundary etc.

By carefully conducting the experiment, laminar flows have been obtained at Reynolds number

has high as 14000. However the practical value of upper critical Reynolds number may be

considered to lie between 2700 to 4000 for pipe flows; the value of 4000 is generally accepted

as upper critical Reynolds number, above which flow in pipes in considered to be turbulent.

Between Reynolds number of 2000 and 4000 the transitional region exists in pipes.

Darcy-Weisbach Friction Factor:

Darcy Weisbach equation is commonly used for computing the loss of head due to

friction in pipes. It is given by,

hf = fLV2 /D2g.

Where,

Hf = loss of head due to friction.

L = Length of pipe.

D = Diameter of Pipe.

V = Mean Velocity of flow in the pipe.

F = Darcy weisbach friction factor.

The above equation indicates that the loss of energy head varies directly with velocity head

(V2/2g). Pipe length L and inversely with pipe diameter (D). The constant of proportionality

used in Darcy Weisbach equation, in the above form, f is called friction factor.

7. The Sump Tank mounted below the Collecting Tank.

8. The Butterfly Valve for instantaneous dumping of collected water into the

Closed circuit basis

Theory:

Like the straight pipes produce the friction to the flow of fluid due to its inside

roughness, the pipe fittings such as Valves, Bends, Elbows, Reducers / Expanders, etc also

offer Resistance / Friction to the flow of fluid. While the head loss due to friction in straight

pipes is expressed by the standard formulae:

hf

f1 V2

.... (a)

2gd

Similar equation:

K V2

2g

.... (b)

By equating (a) and (b), we get the factor K = f l/d where K is the local head loss

Co-efficient of pipe fittings (non-dimensional) expressed in terms of the friction factor (f),

length (l) and diameter (d) of the pipe to which the particular type of fitting is fitted.

22

In the equations where the branches of pipes are used for flow analysis, all the

resistances offered by the fittings are expressed in equivalent length of pipe to which they

are fitted, namely; L =

Kd/f .This is to be added to the length of the straight pipe of

diameter d with the friction factor f ( 0.025 generally assumed ), and the analysis is

done further. Note that the valve of K is to be evaluated from the formulae hf (pipe fitting)

=KV2/ 2g

where V is the velocity of fluid flowing in the pipe line of diameter d to which

the pipe fitting is fitted.

Further, it is also be noted that, if in a branch of pipe lines, where the various

diameter pipes are involved, the similar kind of method is used for converting all the other pipe

of different diameters to the equivalent length of one particular diameter. This way the analysis

becomes simpler. In such cases, the equivalent length is calculated from the formulae;

Introduction:

In general a pump may be defined as a mechanical device which, when interposed in a

pipe line, converts the mechanical energy supplied to it from some external source into

hydraulic energy, thus resulting in the flow of liquid from lower potential to higher potential.

The pumps are of major concern to most engineers and technicians. The types of pump vary

in principle and design. The selection of the pump for any particular applications is to be done

by understanding their characteristics. The most commonly used pumps for domestic,

agriculture and industries are; Centrifugal, Piston, Axial flow (stage pumps), Air jet,

Diaphragm and Turbine pumps. Most of these pumps fall into the main class, namely;

Rotodynamic, Reciprocating (positive displacement), Fluid (air) operated pumps.

While the principle of operation of other pumps is discussed elsewhere, the centrifugal

pump which is of present concern falls into the category of Rotodynamic pumps. In this pump,

the liquid is made to rotate in a closed chamber (volute casing) thus creating a centrifugal action

which gradually built up the pressure gradient towards outlet, thus resulting in the continuous

flow. These pumps compared to reciprocating pumps are simple in construction, more suitable

for handling viscous, turbid (muddy) liquids, can be directly coupled to high speed electric

motors (without any speed reduction ) & easy to maintain. But, their hydraulic heads at low

flow rates is limited, and hence not suitable for very high heads compared to reciprocating

pump of same capacity. But, still in most cases, this is the only type of pump which is being

widely used for agricultural applications because of its practical suitability. The present testing

allows the students to understand and draw the operating characteristics at various heads, flow

rates and speeds, using different size of impellers.

Aim:

To find the efficiency of the submersible pump.

Theory:

Pump:

The pump is a multistage centrifugal pump with radial impellers. Its a suitable for

vertical & horizontal installation for the pumping of clean water with a maximum permissible

sand content of 25 gm per cubic meter. The suction side is protected by a perforated strainer.

The pump bearings are water lubricated and screened against the ingress of sand. The motor

cable(s) run alongside the pump and are protected against mechanical damage by cable metallic

sheaths.

Motor;

The motor, a squirrel cage type, has water lubricated bearings and its windings are

intensively cooled by water surrounding it. The inside of the motor is protected against the

entry of well water sand by seal rings and sand guard. Pressure equalizing rubber diaphragm is

provided in the lower part of the motor. The axial thrust of the pump is taken up by a thrust

bearing. A single cable leads out of the motor through a cable packing box. The pump shaft

and motor shaft are rigidly connected by a coupling sleeve.

The pump is suited both for Horizontal & Vertical operation.

Direction of Rotation:

Let the pumping set run for a short time against a close discharge valve, in both

directions of rotations. The direction of rotation is reserved by crossing over two phase leads

of the power supply. The discharge pressure should be read on the pressure gauge in both cases

and pressure will be higher in one case than in the other. The higher of the two pressures

corresponds to the direction of rotation.

Operating Instructions:

All the necessary instrumentation along with its accessories is readily connected. It is

just enough to follow the instructions below:

1. Fill the sump tank with clean water.

2. Keep the delivery valve open.

3. Connect the power cable to 1ph, 240V, and 5amps with earth connections.

4. Switch on the mains, so that the mains-ON indicator glows. Now, Switch-ON the pump.

5. Now, you will find the water starts flowing to the measuring tank.

6. Close the delivery slightly, so that the delivery pressure is readable.

7. Operate the delivery valve to note down the collecting tank reading against the known time,

& keep it open when the readings are not taken.

8. Note down the other readings as indicated in the tabular column.

9. Repeat the experiment for different openings of the delivery valve.

10. Tabulate the readings, after the experiment is over keep the delivery valve open.

PUMP

Aim:

To study the performance characteristics of a reciprocating pump and to determine the

characteristic with maximum efficiency.

Apparatus Required:

1. Reciprocating pump

2. Meter scale

3. Stop watch

Theory:

In general a pump may be defined as a mechanical device which, when interposed in a

pipe line, converts the mechanical energy supplied to it from some external source into

hydraulic energy, thus resulting in the flow of liquid from lower potential to higher

potential/Head.

The pumps are of major concern to most engineers and technicians. The types of pump

vary in principle and design. The selection of the pump for any particular application is to be

done by understanding their characteristics. While the principle of operation of other pumps

is discussed elsewhere, in standard text books, the Reciprocating pump Falling under the

category of Positive Displacement Pumps, which is of our present concern, has plunger (Piston)

moves to and fro in a closed cylinder. The cylinder is connected to suction and delivery pipes

and are fitted with non-return valve allows the liquid only to enter the cylinder and the delivery

non-return valve allows the liquid only to escape out from the cylinder to the delivery line.

The piston is connected to a crank by means of connecting rod. As the crank is rotated

at uniform speed by prime mover, the plunger moves to and fro thus creating continuous flow

of liquid.

For more uniform flow, an air vessel is fitted before the suction valve, and after delivery

valve. This contributes for more uniform flow of liquid, and also saves energy input to the

pump from the prime mover. These pumps are available in Double Acting, Double Piston

(Duplex), Triplex, Qutraplex versions. The most commonly used one is Double Acting, single

cylinder Type, and is the one used in the present Test Rig. The medium of flow of water, and

the maximum speed normally less than 300 RPM. These pumps are used for High head and

Low Flow Rate application and find application in Automobile garages and finds application

in Automobile garages and multi-storied buildings where high head is required.

Description:

The present test rig is a self-contained unit operated on closed circuit basis. The pump,

electric AC motor, collecting-measuring tank set, control panel are mounted on rigid frame

2. The speed is indicated on digital RPM indicator.

3. To measure overall input power to the AC Motor using energy meter.

Description:

The actual experimental facility supplied consists of a Centrifugal Pump Set, Turbine

Unit, Sump Tank, Collecting, venturimeter arranged in such a way that the whole unit works

on recirculation water system. The Centrifugal Pump Set supplies the water from the sump tank

to the turbine through control valve which has the marking to meter the known quantity of

water. The water after passing through the Turbine units enters the collecting tanks. The water

then flows back to the sump tank through venturimeter for measurement of flow rate.

The loading of the turbine is achieved by rope brake drum connected to spring balance.

The provision for measurement of turbine speed (digital RPM indicator), Head on turbine

(pressure gauge) are built in on the control panel.

Theory:

A Turbine acts as a pump in reverse, to subtract energy from a fluid system. In impulse

turbine the fluid energy, first in the potential form, is next converted wholly into the kinetic

energy by means of one nozzle before striking the runner. The jet ensuring from the nozzle is

made to impinge on the runner tangentially as shown in the figure. A powerful jet issues out of

the nozzle, impinges on the buckets provided on the periphery of the nozzle. In practice these

buckets are usually spoon shaped, with a central ridge splitting the impinging jet into two

halves which are deflected backward. As there is no pressure variation in flow, the fluid partly

fills the buckets and the fluid remains in contact with the atmosphere. The nozzle is provided

with spear mechanism to control the quantity of the water. The actual energy transfer from jet

to wheel is by changing the momentum of the stream. The impact thus produced causes the

runner to rotate and hence produces mechanical power at the shaft.

The main parts of a Pelton turbine are:

a) Spear Valve Mechanism:

In a pelton turbine the flow regulation is done with the help of a spear shaped needle valve.

It consists of a spear connected to a shaft with a hand wheel at its end.

By rotating the hand wheel the spear valve can be moved inside the nozzle axially. When

the spear is moved forward it reduces the floes area and hence flow through nozzle reduces,

similarly when it is moved backwards flow increases. Water flow can also be regulated by

the gate valve provided.

b) Runner with Buckets:

The runner consists of a circular disc with a number of evenly spaced double hemispherical

buckets fixed along its periphery. The disc is mounted on a shaft. The buckets are divided

47

into two parts by a sharp splitter edge at the centre, which divided striking of the jet into

two equal parts. The buckets are so shaped that after flowing around its inner surface; the

water leaves it with a relative velocity almost opposite in direction to the original jet but

does not interface with the passage of water to the bucket

preceding

it

during

rotation. There is notch cut at outer rim of each bucket only when it is almost normal to the

jet.

c) Casing:

The casing of a Pelton turbine has no hydraulic function to perform. It is provided only to

prevent splashing and to lead the water to the tailrace. It is generally made up of stainless

steel and it is fabricated to form D section. Front part of the casing is made of acrylic.

Operation:

1) Connect the supply water pump-water unit to 3 ph, 440 V, 30A, electrical supply,

with neutral and earth connections and ensure the correct direction of the pump

motor unit.

2) Keep the Gate Valve and Sphere valve closed.

3) Keep the Brake Drum loading at zero.

4) Press the green button of the supply pump starter. Now the pump picks-up the full

speed and becomes operational.

5) Slowly open the Sphere Valve so that the turbine rotor picks the speed and conduct

experiment on constant speed and constant head.

6) Note down the speed, load, and pressure gauge readings, tabulate the readings.

Aim:

To conduct load test on Francis turbine and to study the characteristics of Francis

turbine.

Apparatus Required:

1. Stop watch

2. Tachometer

Description:

While the impulse turbine is discussed elsewhere in standard text books, Francis

turbine, the reaction type which is of present concern consists of main components such as

propeller (runner) scroll casing and draft tube. Between the scroll casing and the runner, the

water turns through right angle and passes through the runner and thus rotating the runner shaft.

When guide vane angels are varied, high efficiency can be maintained over wide range of

operating conditions.

The actual experimental facility supplied consists of a centrifugal pump set, turbine

unit, sump tank and Venturimeter arranged in such a way that the whole unit works on

recirculating water system. The centre fugal pump set supplies the water from the sump tank

to the turbine through gate valve. The water after passing through the turbine unit enters back

to the sump tank through the draft tube. The water then flows back to the sump tank through

the Venturimeter with pressure gauges for the measurement of flow rate.

The loading of the turbine is achieved A.C. Generator. The provision for; measurement

of brake force (voltmeter and ammeter), turbine speed (digital RPM indicator), head on the

turbine (pressure gauge), head over the Venturimeter (pressure, vacuum gauge, 2 Nos) are

built-in on to the control panel.

The water enters a volute casing which completely surrounds the runner. The cross

sectional area of volute decreases along the fluid path in such a way as keep the fluid velocity

constant in magnitude. From the fluid passes between stationary guides vanes, mounted all

around the periphery of the runner. The function of these guide vanes is to direct the fluid on

to the runner at required angle. Each vane is pivoted and by a suitable mechanism all may be

turned is synchronism so as to alter the flow rate of the machine. In its passage through the

runner the fluid is deflected by the runner blades so that angular momentum is changed. From

the centre of the runner the fluid is turned to axial direction and flows to tail race via the draft

tube. The lower end of the draft tube must, under all conditions of operation, be submerged

below the level of water in the tail race. Only in this way it can be ensured that a turbine is full

of water.

Theory:

Francis turbine is an inward mixed flow reaction turbine named after the American

Engineer James B. Francis. In a Francis Turbine, water enters the runner at its outer periphery

and flows out axially at its centre. This arrangement provides a large discharge area with the

given diameter of the runner. A part of the net available energy of the water is converted into

kinetic energy and the rest of the major portion remains as pressure energy, as water enters the

53

runner. The runner rotates due to reaction pressure caused by the pressure difference at the

runner entry and exit.

The main components of Francis Turbine are:

1. Scroll casing: Its a spiral shaped closed passage of gradually reducing cross-sectional area,

enclosing the runner. Its function is to distribute the flow uniformly along the periphery of

the runner in such a way that the velocity remains constant at every point.

2. Guide Mechanism: There are two main functions of the guide mechanism (a) To regulate

the quantity of water supplied to the runner and (b) To adjust the direction of flow so that

there is minimum shock at the entrance to runner blades. It consists of a series of guide

vanes of aerofoil section fixed between to rings, in the form of a wheel known as guide

wheel. Each guide vane can be rotated about its pivot centre, which is connected to a

regulating ring by means of a link and lever. By operating the regulating ring the guide

vanes can be rotated, varying the width of the passage between adjacent vanes, thus altering

both the flow angle as well as the quantity of flow.

3. Runner: The runner consists of a series of curved vanes arranged evenly around the

circumference, in the annular space between two plates. It may be cast in one piece or made

of separate steel plates welded together. The runner vanes are so shaped that water enters

radially at the outer periphery and leaves it axially at the inner periphery. This change in

the direction of flow from radial to axial as it passes over the curved vanes changes the

angular momentum of the fluid thereby producing the torque, which rotates the runner. The

runner is keyed to shaft of the turbine.

4. Draft tube: It is a gradually expanding closed passage connecting the runner to the tailrace

(collecting tank). The lower end of the draft tube is always kept submerged in water. The

function of a draft tube is to convert the high kinetic energy of flow at runner exit into

pressure energy, thus increasing the efficiency of the turbine. It also enables the turbine to

be installed above the tail race level without any loss of head.

Theory:

Hydraulic (or Water) turbines are the machines which use the energy of water (HydroPower) and convert it into mechanical energy. Thus the turbine becomes the prime mover to

run the electrical generators to produce the electricity, Viz., Hydro-electric power.

The turbines are classified as Impulse & Reaction types. In impulse turbine, the head of

water is completely converted into a jet, which impulses the forces on the turbine. In reaction

turbine, it is the pressure of the following water, which rotates the runner of the turbine. Of

many types of turbine, the Pelton wheel, most commonly used, falls into the category of

turbines. While Francis & Kaplan falls in category of impulse reaction turbines.

Normally, Pelton wheel (impulse turbine) requires high heads & low discharge, while

the Francis & Kaplan (reaction turbines) require relatively low heads and high discharge. These

corresponding heads and discharges are difficult to create in laboratory size turbine from the

limitation of the pumps availability in the market. Nevertheless, at least the performance

characteristics could be obtained within the limited facility available in the laboratories.

Further, understanding various elements associated with any particular turbine are possible with

this kind of facility.

Description:

While the impulse turbine is discussed elsewhere in standard textbooks, Kaplan turbine,

the reaction type which is of present concern consists of main components such as propeller

(runner) scroll casing and draft tube. Between the scroll casing and the runner, the water turns

through right angle into axial direction and passes through the runner and thus rotating the

runner shaft. The runner has four blades which can be turned about their own axis so that the

angle inclination may be adjusted while the turbine in motion. When runner blade angles are

varied, high efficiency can be maintained over wide range of operating conditions. In the other

words even at parts loads, when a low discharge is following through the runner, a high

efficiency can be attained in case of Kaplan turbine, whereas this provision does not exist in

Francis and propeller turbines where, the runner blade angles are fixed and integral with hub.

The actual experimental facility supplied consists of a centrifugal pump set, turbine

unit, sump tank, Venturimeter arranged in such a way that the whole unit works on re

circulating water system. The centrifugal pump set supplies the water from the sump tank to

the turbine through gate valve which has the marking to the meter the known quantity of water.

The water after passing through the turbine units enters the same tank through the draft tube.

58

The water then flows back to the sump tank through the Venturimeter for the measurement of

flow rate.

The loading of the turbine is achieved by electrical AC generator connected to blub

bank. The provision for measurement electrical energy by energy meter, turbine speed (digital

RPM indicator), Head on the turbine (pressure gauge), are built-in on to the control panel.

Procedure:

1. Connect the supply pump-motor unit to 3 ph., 440V, 30A, electrical supply, with neutral

and earth connections and ensure the correct direction of pump-motor unit.

2. Keep the gate value closed and Switch on the MCB.

3. Ensure that all the three indicators are glowing.

4. Keep the electrical load at zero, by keeping all switches in off position.

5. Keep the blade for the required position by adjustable wheel (1/4, , and full open).

6. Press the green button of the supply pump starter and then release.

7. Slowly, open the gate so that turbine rotor picks up the speed and attains maximum at

particular opening of the gate. Also ensure motor is running in correct direction.

8. Apply load by switching on each switch one at a time. (Or in a bunch)

9. Note down the Venturimeter pressures, time for 3 blinks in energy meter, speed, pressure

and vacuum on the meters at the control panel and tabulate results.

10. After completion of experiment remove the load by switching off all the electrical switches.

11. Close the gate & then switch OFF the supply water pump set.

12. Follow the procedure described below for taking down the reading for evaluating the

performance characteristics of the Kaplan turbine.
