Paper Title
Experimental Investigation of Axial Flow Horizontal Axis Water Turbine with Fix Vane Angle
  Dharmesh D. Jariwala,  Vimal K. Patel,  Nirmal Kumar

River current generation uses a generator to produce energy, changing the kinetic energy of current into a turning force by setting a water turbine in the river current. Presence of rivers or canals are observed in most of the parts of India almost throughout the year with full of water current. However, development towards use of kinetic energy from river current is not explored. An innovative axial flow turbine is introduced for utilization of river current of flowing fluid. The broad objective of the report is to explore efficient utilization of kinetic energy of water resources available in India in form of flowing river and canal by using innovative axial flow hydrokinetic turbine. The prime objective of the report is to enhance performance of axial flow turbine for fixed vane angle. Experimental set up was developed using axial flow turbine. Experiment is done in Ukai-Kakrapar irrigation canal at Palsana region for 600 vane angle. An experiment indicates maximum 16% coefficient of power (Cp) at 4.04 Tip Speed Ratio (TSR).

Keywords- River current generation, Horizontal axis turbine, Axial Flow Turbine, Hydrokinetic turbine
