Vattenfall turbine test stand- A steppingstone when developing AFC4Hydro technology

The Vattenfall turbine test stand located in Älvkarleby 110 km north of Stockholm will host a series of testing necessary for meeting the objectives of the AFC4Hydro project. Validation and verification of AFC4Hydro technologies require a strong correspondence between results obtained using numerical modelling and physical measurements. The Vattenfall test stand ensure a very high […]

Introduction to Work Package 1

The objective of this work package is to investigate the possibility to mitigate pressure pulsations in hydraulic turbine by the injection of pulsating momentum (IPM). The concept will be investigated experimentally and numerically at different scales in the following order; reduced model (Re»104), turbine model (Re»106), 10 MW prototype turbine and 200 MW prototype turbine.
