Announcements ADT will host Efficiency Improvement and Cavitation Control of Francis Turbine Stages by TURBOdesign Suite on Thursday, December 10th, at 8am and 4pm GMT.

Francis turbines and hydraulic turbines play a major role in both small scale and large scale hydraulic energy plants and are increasingly being used for energy storage applications. The 3D inverse design method offers one of the best means of meeting multi-point and multi-objective requirements for hydraulic turbines as it can cover a large design space with very small number of design parameters.

In this webinar we will show how the newly developed meanline design code for Francis turbine, which has been recently developed in TURBOdesign Suite, can be used to do the initial sizing of all components of a Francis turbine from volute, stay vane, guide vane and runner. We will demonstrate how the new meanline code coupled with TURBOdesign1 and TURBOdesign Volute can be used to quickly generate a complete 3D Francis Turbine stage that meet the main duty points of the stage and provide a high efficiency.

We will show you:

  • How to approach the design of Francis Turbines.
  • How to improve existing turbine designs for efficiency.
  • How to ameliorate turbines designs for cavitation and efficiency.
