Cavitation monitoring in hydraulic machines with aid of a computer aided visualization method

Project information

Grant agreement ID: 2139

  • Start date

    4 June 2003

  • End date

    31 May 2003

Funded under:

FP5-EESD

  • Overall budget:

    € 478 571

  • EU contribution

    € 190 000

Coordinated by:

TURBOINSTITUT, D.D.

Slovenia

Objective

Scientific objectives:
- gain new fundamental knowledge of physical phenomena of cavitations in hydraulic machines with aid of a recent computer-aided visualization method.

Technical objectives
- the employment of the above mentioned fundamental knowledge along with new method of computer-aided visualization and develop a new, direct method of cavitations detection and monitoring on vital parts of hydraulic machines, .increase turbine operating range due to exact definition of cavitations limits, which are continuously monitored. The monitoring will be performed on a model of hydraulic machine as well as on a prototype - real hydroelectric power plant turbine.
