The educational unit is designed to be a supply unit for the study of different turbines used in fluid mechanics such as a reaction turbine, Pelton turbine, and action turbine. the unit has a stainless steel tank and submersible pump whose speed is variable.

                                     
  • The experimental system consists of a base unit designed to accommodate three types of turbines & allows studying the performance of different types of turbines.
  • The base unit is consisting of supply tank with submersed pump that feeds the turbines under certain rate of flow & pressure.
  • The system is supplied with a pressure sensor at the inlet of the turbine module (the output of the centrifugal pump).
  • The unit is also supplied with flow rate sensor for measuring the flow rate of the water in the tank.
  • The training system contains proximity sensor for measuring the speed of the pump in addition to a load cell sensor for measuring the torque of the submersed pump.
  • The control unit consists of two main parts, the displays of torque, pressure, flow and speed measurements of the pump.
  • The second part is the controlling functions of the turbines.
  • The controlling functions in the control unit are used for controlling the speed, the operation of the submersed pump and the operation of the entire system.
  • The control unit is also supplied with an emergency switch for safety purposes.
  • the unit could determine the type of turbine mounted on it through software.
  • The turbine modules included are the pelton turbine, the reaction turbine and the action (Impulse) turbine.
  • The turbine module structure is placed into a transparent tank to allow the trainees to observe the turbine internal working mechanism of the turbine and the water flow of the nozzles into the turbine.
  • The experimental modules can be positioned easily and securely on the main unit’s surface with the minimum connections possible.
  • The integrated software provides the following features:
    • Display the speed, torque and flow rate of the pump and the turbine inlet pressure, speed and flow rate.
    • Recording the previous readings and calculating other parameters using these records then displaying them on screen.
    • Using both recorded and calculated measures into plotting graphs for displaying the relations of these parameters with each other.
