Virtual Testing of a Plant with Hydro Francis Turbine

Alba Giovanni - Zeco
Rossetti Antonio - Zeco


The virtual test evaluation of a 1.5 MW hydroelectric plant, performed with a CFD software, will be assessed. The methodology to evaluate this machine (a Francis turbine), together with its efficiency diagram will be then presented. Afterwards, the analyses on interaction dynamics between the machine and the outlet channel will be shown, verifying that peculiar instability phenomena will not occur.
