IPM measurements at LTU have been initiated

During the last couple of weeks, attempts to mitigate the RVR using a method that belongs to the IPM family have been performed in the LTU test rig.

EU Green Week 2021_partner event

AFC4Hydro project will be presented in the frame of the EU Green Week events next week. About the event: “European hydropower is important for the Green Deal” Hydropower is an important renewable energy sources in Europe. Reservoir hydropower and pumped hydro provides very large volume of energy storage. This largely exceeds current battery technologies. Modern, …

The PIV measurements at LTU reaches their end – for this time

The stereoscopic (i.e., three component two dimensional*) PIV measurements in the LTU test rig have now been finalized. In depth analyses of the acquired data is still underway, but comparisons with the previously performed purely two dimensional PIV measurements show great similarities with the two components that were measured then as seen in the figures …

Successful start of 2D PIV measurements at LTU – now moving on to 3D PIV

The 2D particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements in the draft tube cone of the LTU test rig have now been finalized with successful outcome. Initial qualitative analyses show expected results, with two examples shown in the figures below. The figures display the axial velocity at the best efficiency point (BEP) to the left, and part load (PL) to the right (the dashed lines …
