WP 6 - Industrial application Optimal turbine design

The numerical design platform developed will be used to optimise the static distribution components and the runner for Pelton, Turgo and Matrix turbines. By performing multiple numerical optimisation runs the various design parameters will be correlated to the turbine performance.

Then for selected operation conditions a specific design will be defined that exhibits maximum efficiency for each of the three turbines under consideration. Finally reduced scale model drawings will be derived from the hydraulic designs.
