Abstract:

For low pressure heads, horizontal capsule turbines have been found to have better overload capacities than normal, vertical units. In this work, a further investigation is reported which developed a new type of variable pitch turbine blade wheel, the PLG-16, for horizontal capsule turbines, which is better in its power and cavitation properties than earlier models.
