Modelling of hydraulic components for hydroelectric power generating units

Thiessen, Peter Stewart January 1973 (has links)
The thesis deals with a procedure for developing mathematical models of hydraulic components for hydroelectric power generating units. Hydraulic system components modelled are the penstock, reservoir, surge tank, Francis turbine and the wicket gate actuator. A modelling philosophy is suggested. The thesis proposes that for a generator experiencing a sharp transient, such as line breaker reclosing, its capacity to maintain synchronism can be enhanced by taking advantage of waterhammer to sharply reduce the turbine's hydraulic torque input to the generator during the first few swings of the tie-line. Results of computer simulations included support this claim. / Applied Science, Faculty of / Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of / Graduate

High Pressure Hydraulic Supply System Model

Mock, William H. 01 January 1977 (has links) (PDF)
A mathematical model is derived to provide quasi-steady state predictions of the performance of a high pressure hydraulic supply system, using equations which govern the physical processes as opposed to equations which match input-output characteristics. Model equations are developed to describe the operation of the power source, control valves, energy source, gas side of the system, hydraulic accumulator, the motorpump, and hydraulic side of the system. The accuracy of the model is then checked by inserting known parameters from a previously developed control system and comparing model predictions with performance data from this system.

Local scour at isolated obstacles on river beds

Huang, Cheng-Chang 30 August 1990 (has links)
Maximum equilibrium scour depths, equilibrium scour volumes, and induced equilibrium movements at isolated obstacles on river beds were investigated in clear-water scour. The research was achieved by a systematic flume study based on the results of dimensional analysis of local scour. The main tested obstacles for local scour were cubes. Local scour at a circular cylinder of aspect ratio 1 and a sphere were also examined for comparison with scour at cubes. Each obstacle was placed on a flat movable bed and oriented normal to the incident flow. Non-cohesive uniform medium sand and very fine gravel were used as movable beds. The tested flow conditions were controlled to give many combinations of the relevant dimensionless parameters for local scour: the flow Froude Number, relative obstacle size, and relative roughness of bed material. Water surface profiles and longitudinal velocity profiles along the plane of symmetry, as well as the horizontal velocities near the bed around isolated obstacles on a fixed bed were examined in several runs. For a slightly submerged cube, the path of maximum velocity downstream of the cube moves from the water surface into the lower part of the flow. At a greater distance downstream, the path of maximum velocity tends to move upward toward the water surface. An increase of flow Froude Number leads to a hydraulic jump behind the cube. The relative longitudinal velocity near the bed is increased in this region. The decrease of relative water depth or the increase of flow Froude Number can lead to increased average relative horizontal velocity (V/u) near a cube. The cube has the highest average V/u value, as compared to flow near a circular cylinder and a sphere. The local scour processes and equilibrium scour patterns at isolated cubes on movable beds were also examined. There is not a unique equilibrium scour pattern for clear-water scour at a cube on a movable bed. Equations were developed to predict the maximum equilibrium scour depth and scour volume and the critical condition for incipient motion of bed material at a cube in clear-water scour. As the water becomes relatively deep, the shape effect of the circular cylinder and the sphere become negligible. The major equilibrium movement of a cube on a movable bed due to scour involves longitudinal displacement, vertical settlement, and longitudinal inclination. Equations were developed to predict the equilibrium movement and the critical condition for incipient upstream movement of a cube in clear-water scour. / Graduation date: 1991
