Pelton wheel

Date :

Aim :

To conduct a test on the pelton wheel (turbine) at constant head.

Apparatus required:

Description:

Pelton turbine is an impulse turbine, which is used to utilise high heads for

generation of electricity. All the available head is converted into velocity energy by

means of spear and nozzle arrangement. The water leaves the nozzle in jet formation. The

jet of water then strikes the buckets of the pelton wheel runner. The buckets are in the

shape of double cups, joined at the middle portion. The jet strikes the knife edge of the

buckets with least resistance and shock. Then the jet glides along the path of the cup, and

the jet is deflected through more than 160° to 170°. While passing along the buckets, the

velocity of the water is reduced and hence an impulsive force is supplied to the cups

which in turn are moved and hence the shaft is rotated. The specific speed of the pelton

wheel changes from 10 to 100.

Procedure :

i) Keep the nozzle opening at the required position. i.e. full opening or 3/4

opening.

ii) Start the pump.

iii) Allow water in to the turbine, then the turbine rotates.

iv) Note the speed of the turbine.

v) Take readings in manometer.

vi) Note the pressure of water in the pressure gauge.

vii) Load the turbine by putting weights.

viii) Note dead weight T1 and spring weight T2

ix) Note the head.

x) Repeat the experiment for different loadings.

xi) Tabulate the readings.

Francis turbine

Date :

Aim:

To study the characteristics of Francis Turbine at constant head.

Apparatus required:

Description:

Francis turbine is a prime mover. It converts the hydraulic energy (head of water)

into mechanical energy, which in turn can be transformed into electrical energy by

coupling a generator to the turbine. Francis Turbine is a radial inward flow reaction

turbine. This has the advantage of centrifugal force acting against the flow, thus reducing

the tendency of the wheel to race. The turbine consists essentially of runner (G.M.), a

ring of adjustable guide vanes, a volute casing(spiral casing) , draft tube. Francis turbines

are best suited for medium heads, say 40m to 300m. The specific speed ranges from 25 to

300.

Procedure:

ii) Prime the pump

iii) Start the pump

iv) Vent the manometer

v) Note the pressure gauge reading (G) and vacuum gauge reading (V).

vi) Adjust the gate valve so that G +V reads = 15m.

vii) Note the readings in the pressure gauge

Left limb reading = P1 m

Right limb reading = P2 m.

viii) Measure the speed of the turbine by tachometer

ix) Load the turbine by putting weights in the weights hanger. Take all

readings.

x) Repeat the experiments for various loadings and take 6 readings.

xi) Experiment can be repeated for different guide vane opening.

Formulae:

Right limb reading = P2m.
