Prediction of Erosion Damages in Hydraulic MAchines (PREDHYMA)

Start date: 01 Oct 2013, End date: 30 Sep 2017,

"Hydraulic turbines can undergo severe damaging during operation, because of low quality water or detrimental flow conditions. Damaging induces maintenance costs and power production losses, and can also endanger safety of installations. Hydropower plants operators and turbine manufacturers are interested in extending overhaul periods by reducing damaging intensity and protecting turbine component ...

Simulation of Transients in Hydraulic Machines (SiTHyM)

Start date: 01 Oct 2010, End date: 30 Sep 2013,

Because of the evolution of the electricity market in Europe hydraulic machines are operated in non conventional conditions. This leads to the apparition of strong transient flow phenomena that are not well understood. Conventional numerical simulation tools are not well adapted to capture these transient phenomena. It is proposed to use a novel approach based on the mesh-free technique Smoothed P ...
