Title

Selection of Axial Hydraulic Turbines For Medium Head Micro hydropower Plants

Abstract

The creation of highly efficient hydro turbine for medium head micro hydro power plants is considered. The use of uncontrolled hydro turbines is a promising means of minimizing costs and the time for their recoupment. The model axial hydraulic turbine produced. The rotor diameter of this turbine is 200 mm. In the design of the working rotor, ANSYS CFX software is employed. Means of improving the efficiency of micro hydropower plants by optimal selection of the turbine parameters in the early stages of design are outlined. The energy efficiency of the hydro turbine designed for use in a micro hydropower plant may be assessed on the basis of the coefficient of energy utilization, which is a function of the total losses in all the pipeline elements and losses in the channel including the hydro turbine rotor. The limit on the coefficient of energy utilization in the pressure pipeline is the hydraulic analog limit, which is widely used in the design of wind generators. The proposed approach is experimentally verified at Engineering Institute. A model axial hydraulic turbine with four different rotors is designed for the research. The diameter of all four rotors is the same: 90 mm. The pipeline takes the form of a siphon. Working rotor R2, designed with parameter optimization, is characterized by the highest coefficient of energy utilization of the pressure pipeline and maximum efficiency. That confirms that the proposed approach is a promising means of maximizing the overall energy efficiency of the micro hydropower plant.
