Exclusive Webinar on 10/12 - Design Optimization of Francis turbine, Dec 2020, Algeria

Posted By: Camille Gatti
Date:Thu, 19 Nov 2020, 11:35 a.m.

Algeria, December 10, 2020

Register for ADT's Exclusive Webinar on: Efficiency
Improvement and
Cavitation Control of Francis Turbine Stages by
TURBOdesign Suite. Join us on Thursday, December 10th, at 8 am and 4 pm GMT.



Francis turbines play a major role in both small scale
and large scale hydraulic energy plants and are
increasingly being used for energy storage applications
where pump/turbine arrangement is used to store energy
from renewable sources such as wind and solar. The 3D
inverse design method offers one of the best means of
meeting multi point and multi-objective requirements for
hydraulic turbines as it can cover a large design space
with very small number of design parameters. This enables
efficient multi-point optimization hydraulic turbines.

In this webinar we will show how the newly developed
meanline design code for Francis turbine, which has been
recently developed in TURBOdesign Suite, can be used to
do the initial sizing of all components of a Francis
turbine from volute, stay vane, guide vane and runner. We
will demonstrate how the new meanline code coupled with
TURBOdesign1 and TURBOdesign Volute can be used to
quickly generate a complete 3D Francis Turbine stage that
meet the main duty points of the stage and provide a high

Furthermore, we will show how TURBOdesign1 with its
direct control of blade loading or pressure jump across
the blade provides the best means of directly controlling the
efficiency and cavitation performance of the runner.
