Hydro Info Systems

- Version KC4 - Software Tool for Hydraulic Turbines


TURBNPRO is the only software of its kind created to develop information on hydraulic turbines, their selection and application under specific site conditions. 

The essential software tool for:

  • hydroelectric project developers
  • consulting engineers performing feasibility studies and preliminary project designs
  • water power systems educators

TURBNPRO determines hydroturbine sizing and type selection based on actual site data entered by the User. Typical performance and dimensional data of the hydroturbine size/type selected are developed by the program including speed, runaway speed and cavitation characteristics. TURBNPRO includes extensive graphics showing turbine performance tin various formats as well as identification of major turbine components and dimensions.

  • For hydro-project feasibility studies, assess the project's annual energy production potential

TURBNPRO may be used to calculate the energy production, applying the turbine solution(s) created and the User’s site net head and flow data. In optimizing project energy potential study single or multiple turbine solutions.

  • Quickly consider alternative solution possibilities
Advantages, disadvantages and limitations of the various water turbine configurations/arrangements are discussed. The impact of cavitation on hydroturbine sizing and type selection is also covered.
If you are involved in hydroelectric projects and water power studies, we believe you will find TURBNPRO an important addition to your library of hydro turbine information resources and valuable as a time savings aid in your decisions on turbine equipment type and size selection. If you are including hydroelectric power, waterpower, hydroturbines or turbomachinery in your university curricula of energy and hydraulic technologies, you will find TURBNPRO valuable as both reference and presentation material.

Data Entry Screen Examples
Easy to follow sequence of entering data and developing the turbine solution. TURBNPRO will determine unit sizes and speeds that satisfy the criteria entered. You select the turbine arrangement and orientation (within allowable limits) or let TURBNPRO select a default arrangement.
Data Output Summary Examples
TURBNPRO calculates and displays typical turbine dimensional and performance information on your selection and displays generic graphical views of the turbine.
Performance Displays
TURBNPRO displays performance in Hill Curve, crossplot or tabular formats. Results may be exported to User's spreadsheet software for use in other programming.

Energy Calculator
To aid you in your optimization of the turbine type and quantity, enter your site's flow duration characteristics as well as the variations in headwater and tailwater elevations and TURBNPRO will calculate the annual energy of the turbine solution(s) developed.
Annual Energy Results
Annual energy results are displayed in various tabular and graphical formats and may be exported to User's spreadsheet software for use in other programming.
Application Briefings
TURBNPRO presents a briefing advising the advantages and disadvantages of the various arrangement types.
