Project aims

Thursday 19 March 2015

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 components with surface treatments.Automatic word wrap
Accurate and reliable prediction of damaging is however missing. The PREDHYMA project aims at developing predictive tools addressing damaging mechanisms and helping engineers to better manage installations’ lifecycle.

The program is composed by four thesis projects:

Hydro abrasive erosion
Gravels and stones impacts
Cavitation erosion
Droplets impacts erosion
