  1. 1. Numerical Investigations of Turbulent Flow in Water Turbines

    Author : Håkan Nilsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multiblock; Parallel; Visualization; Validation; Verification; Turbine; CFD; Francis; Numerical; Kaplan;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates turbulent flow in water turbines, focusing onthe flow in the vicinity of reaction water turbine runners such as theKaplan runner and the Francis runner. The method of investigationis principally numerical although some experimental observations andmeasurements made in the present work and elsewhere are included. READ MORE

  2. 2. FLOW FIELD IN A HIGH HEAD FRANCIS TURBINE DRAFT TUBE DURING TRANSIENT OPERATIONS

    Author : Rahul Goyal; Michel J. Cervantes; Bhupendra K. Gandhi; Gabriel Ciocan; Lisa Prahl; Ramis Orlu; Gunilla Andree; Andrea Toffolo; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Francis turbine; Steady state; Transient; Particle Image Velocimetry; Vortex Rope; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Hydroelectricity plays an important role to balance the stability of grid network.  In order to improve the stability of presently high loaded grids, hydropower plants are being operated over a wide range of operations and experiencing frequent start-stop, load rejection, and load acceptance.

  3. 3. Mitigation of Pressure Pulsations in Francis Turbine Draft Tube with a GuideVane System : A Numerical Investigation

    Author : Jesline Joy; Michel Cervantes; Cécile Münch-Alligné; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Computational fluid dynamics; Francis turbine; Part load; Reduced modelling; Rotating vortex rope; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : The use of renewable energy such as water and wind to produce electricity has been proven extremely effective in Sweden. The ability of these renewable resources to produce clean output energy counters the adversities caused by non-renewable resources. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigations of Transient Pressure Loading on a High Head Francis Turbine

    Author : Chirag Trivedi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis includes six peer-reviewed publications. Beginning with an extensive literature review, this work discusses the study of turbine performance, investigations of the unsteady pressure loading during transient operations, and consequences at runaway speed.

  5. 5. Transients in high head Francis turbines

    Author : Chiragkumar Trivedi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : On demand energy market and favourable government policies to encourage the usage of renewable energy have led to a dramatic increase of grid connected wind, solar, and other power in recent years. Penetration of the power above manageable limit, produced using intermittent energy sources, to meet the demand has induced instable grid operations. READ MORE
