Measurement and analysis of vibrations in a pump-turbine. Voith Siemens Hydro, Heidenheim (Germany).

The Centre for Industrial Diagnostics and Fluid Dynamics (CDIF UPC) has completed a numerical and experimental study of the dynamic behaviour of pump-turbine vanes submerged in water. The study determined the effects of the added mass of water, the contour, and the rotor on the dynamic response of this type of vane.
