The Surge Tank The surge tank is located between the almost horizontal or slightly inclined conduit and steeply sloping penstock and is designed as a chamber excavated in the mountain.

Surge tanks serve as a threefold purpose; 1. Upon the rapid closure of the turbine, water masses moving in the pressure tunnel and in the penstock are suddenly decelerated. Owing to the inertia of moving masses, F = ma, high overpressures develop at the lower end of the penstock, which are propagating upwards in the penstock in the form of pressure wave. The magnitude of the so-called water hammer, caused by the moving masses by closure, will depend upon the dimensions and elastic properties of the conduit. The overpressure due to water hammer travels along the closed conduit and is not relieved until a free water surface is reached. An important function of the surge tank can be summarized like this. The turbines to the reservoir is practically interrupted by the surge tank to prevent the pressure wave due to the water hammer at the free water surface and to free the pressure tunnel from excessive pressures. 2. The surge provides protection to the penstock against damage of water hammer. The overpressure depends upon the length of the penstock (the closed conduit). The surge tank, by interrupting the closed system of the penstock and of the pressure tunnel, reduces the overpressure due to water hammer. 3. The third purpose of the surge tank is to provide water supply to the turbines in case of starting up. The amount of water required during these changes in operating conditions is supplied by the surge tank installed in the conduit. The capacity thereof should be selected to ensure the required water supply during the most unfavorable increase in demand, until the water mass in the tunnel 1

In case of rapid opening. the flow in the tunnel is smaller than the turbine demand to supply water to the turbine. The phenomenon described is the water surface oscillation. Air should be prevented from entering the penstock even in case of the deepest downsurge in the chamber. the following groups can be distinguished. water masses in the penstock are suddenly decelerated. The cycle is repeated all over again with amplitudes reduced by friction.e. The water surface in the chamber will start to drop to below of the steady-state level.

Upon the rapid and partial closure of the valve following a sudden load decrease. Variations in demand initiated by a rapid opening or closure of the valve or turbine are followed with a time lag by the water masses moving in the tunnel.
