Kaplan Turbine Trainer

Kaplan Turbine Trainer
Kaplan Turbine Trainer
Product Description


  • The unit is used to investigate the characteristic behavior of a simple-regulated Kaplan turbine during operation.
  • The trainer is provided with a closed water circuit with tank, submersible pump and throttle valve tbr adjusting the flow rate. 
  • The angle of attack of the rotor, and thus the power output of the turbine, is changed by adjusting the guide vanes. 
  • The turbine is loaded with a wear-free eddy current brake.
  • The speed is captured by means of an inductive, non-contact position sensor at the turbine shaft. 
  • For determining the turbine power, the eddy current brake is equipped with a force sensor for torque measurement. 
  • The pressures at the inlet and outlet of the turbine, the temperature and the flow rate are recorded with sensors. 
  • The recorded measured values are displayed digitally and processed further in a PC. 
  • The PC is used to calculate the power output data of complete with all required accessories.
  • The examined turbine and to represent them in characteristic curves.
