Design of a Laboratory Scale Archemedes Screw Turbine Model Hydroelectric Power Station (PLTA) Simulator

Muhammad Hasan Basri, Ahmad Muhtadi, Darul Hasan


The purpose of this research is to design a new model simulator of the Archimedes Screw turbine on a laboratory scale which is simple, inexpensive, environmentally friendly and for practice at the Electrical Engineering Laboratory of Nurul Jadid University by studying the efficiency of the Archimedes turbine which utilizes kinetic energy. water flow energy from the difference in upstream-downstream water head. Methods used numerical simulations have been run to evaluate the performance coefficient of the turbine alone (without friction loss or blockage augmentation), and to extend the TSR range. Numerical simulations make it possible to generate efficiency curves of Archimedes Screw turbines in both parallel and inclined configurations. The result obtained is that the proposed geometry can be used in real-life applications, providing 0.5 kW at flow velocities between 1 and 2 m/s. Novelty of hydropower simulation studies of the Archimedes turbine screw model using numerical simulation methods.
