With help of 3D Animation Working and Design aspects of a Kaplan turbine is elaborated in this video lecture. Functions of spiral casing, guide vanes, runner blades, blade pitching and draft tube are explained here in a logical manner. Special importance is given to Kaplan turbine blade design aspects. Kaplan turbines are in top 3 Hydraulic Machines, in terms of installed capacity.  Have a nice learning experience, Enjoy !

Kaplan Turbine works on the principle of axial flow reaction. In axial flow turbines, the water flows through the runner along the direction parallel to the axis of rotation of the runner. Kaplan turbine is now widely used throughout the world for high-flow and low head power production.
In this project, we will learn about the Design of Kaplan Turbine using Matlab and Solid works. The main purpose of this project is to automate the design process of Kaplan Turbine. In this video, we will discuss the construction of the Turbine blade profile and Velocity diagrams in detail. The concepts of Fluid Mechanics are used to explain the reason behind the twisting of Turbine blades. The design procedure for the Kaplan turbine is presented in this video.
Things covered in this project:
1. Introduction to Kaplan Turbine
2. Velocity Diagrams of Turbine blades
3. Choosing a suitable Blade profile
4. Develop Matlab code to automate the design process
5. Export Turbine Blade coordinates to a Text file
6. Generate 3D model of Kaplan Turbine in Solidworks
