Double regulated vertical Kaplan turbine in an open flume
H= 5,0 m Q= 10,0 m3/s P=450 kW
For our customer, Elektro Ljubljana OVE, we designed, supplied and installed all the electrical and mechanical equipment for a hydro power plant on the Krka river, complete from the concept design to facility commissioning.
The investor dicided to replace two old Francis turbines for a new, bigger, better efficient double regulated vertical Kaplan turbine in an open flume. Choosing to use a turbine located in an open flume significantly reduces the cost of concrete work and the total investment. The turbine is a double regulated, which means that the angle of guide vanes and runner blades is changing depending on the water flow. Also efficiency of turbine is very high in all regime of running.
