Hydraulic laboratory

Hydraulic laboratory supports development of hydraulic machines, carry out tests of physical models of hydraulic turbines, pump-turbines and pumps in accordance with the IEC 60193, as well as provide flowmeter calibration.

Hydraulic laboratory
Parameters of universal testing rig Maximum Head Maximum Discharge Max. output of the model Max. rotation speed of the model H = 120 m Q = 1,2 m3 s-1 Pmax = 300 kW Nmax = 2000 rpm 50 m3

Useful capacity of the calibration tank

Hydraulic laboratory
Tests of physical models are an essential part of research and development of large-sized and medium-sized hydraulic machines; A computer system of data acquisition and processing is apllied Model tests provide the following data: Performance characteristics (discharge, head, speed, torque and efficiency) Cavitation characteristics Pressure fluctuation Velocity and pressure distribution Hydraulic load
