Class: Mechanical (IIIYEAR)

1. Draw and explain completely Layout of Hydroelectric power plant
2. In a single stage impulse turbine the isentropic enthalpy drop of 300 kJ/kg
occurs in the nozzle having efficiency of 98% and nozzle angle of 18°. The
blade velocity coefficient is 0.98 and ratio of blade speed to steam velocity is
0.45. The steam mass flow rate is 18 kg/s and velocity of steam entering is
60 m/s. Determine
(a) The blade angles at inlet and outlet if the steam enters blades smoothly and
leaves axially.
(c) The power developed in kW
(d) The axial thrust.
Solve using combined velocity diagram.
3. A Centrifugal pump running at 600rpm,is working against a total head of
18.4m.The external diameter of the impeller is 580cm and out let width7cm.if
the vanes angle at outlet is 380 and manometric efficiency is 74%,determine
i)Flow velocity ii)Absolute velocity of water leaving the vane

by the absolute velocity at outlet of with the direction of motion at outlet
iv)Rate of flow through the pump.
4. A Double acting reciprocating pump, running at 60RPM delivers
0.00626m3/s of water. The diameter of piston is 30cm and stroke length
40mm.the suction and delivery heads are 4m and 12m respectively. Determine
i) Theoretical discharge

ii) Co-efficient of discharge

iii) % of slip

iv) power required to run the pump

5. Explain completely centrifugal pump with neat sketch.
