Abstract:

This paper presents the instrumentation of a full-scale Kaplan turbine and some preliminary results from a measuring campaign. Miniature pressure sensors and strain gauges were installed on a runner blade as well as strain gauges on the shaft. The goal is to investigate the machine at different operating conditions and find a relation between the sensors on the blade and the shaft. The preliminary results indicate a successful strategy to instrument the Kaplan turbine.
