Water Power Laboratory
The Water Power (aka Hydro Power) Laboratory consists of various pipe-loops pressurized through centrifugal pumps. In addition to conventional closed loop test circuits, the laboratory is equipped with an upper free surface reservoir which is unique and gives a great deal of flexibility. Of special test rigs one can mention:
- Test rig for Francis, Kaplan and reversible pump turbines (RPT). This rig is in accordance with IEC standards
- Test rig for Pelton turbines.
- Test rig for micro, mini and s mall turbines.
Research at the laboratory is mainly connected to student projects for Master and PhD degrees, such as:
