Abstract

To date, there have been eight types of simple reaction hydraulic turbines. One of these is the Z-Blade turbine, which is capable of being used for pico-hydro applications. This paper also explores the effect of k-factor on the performance of a Z-Blade turbine for ideal and practical cases. The viscous losses factor represents the power loss associated with the fluid flow through the turbine, which definitely occurs during real operating conditions. By using the governing equation, which has been derived from the conservation of energy principle, the k-factor is simulated and investigated. Furthermore, this paper also proves that, with a one percent difference in the magnitude of rotational speed and mass flow rate, a large variation in k-factor is presented.
