Francis turbine is suitable for middle and high water head, from 15 meter to 300 meters. The merits of this turbine include good operation stability, impacted structure, and relatively higher average efficiency. Vertical and horizontal shaft arrangements are both available. It is one of the most widely used turbines. Sample: HLA551C-WJ-50 Francis Horizontal Shaft Hydraulic turbine 1. Guaranteed Turbine Performance Output: At hereunder listed water head and tailwater level, when turbine run at rated speed 1000rpm, and the Cavitation Erosion is in permitted range, the output is: Net water head (m) Output (kw) Max. Output (kw) Designed Water head 33.7 543.3 kW 574.3 Efficiency: At rated head 33.7 m, rated output 543.3kW, the guaranteed prototype turbine efficiency is no less than 89%, under the same operation condition the model turbine efficiency guaranteed value is no less than 92%. Under all operation range, the prototype turbine max. Efficiency guaranteed value is no less than 89%, model turbine max. Efficiency guaranteed value is no less than 92.7%. Regulation Guarantee At 33.7 m water head, 543.3 KW output, when dump full load, the maximum speed rise will not exceed 60%. At 33.7 m water head, 543.3 KW output, when dump full load, the maximum pressure rise at the spiral case will not exceed 50%.
