Hydraulic Machine Experimental Test Rigs

The three testing platforms at LMH function on fully adjustable support frames, each equipped with a system of hydraulic jacks, moveable support members, and a variety of segmented pipes, elbows, bellows, and valves. As a result, the intake pipes and/or intake tank and outflow tank, turbine fixing points, drive-shaft configurations and generator mounting points can be adjusted to meet any height and distance requirements inherent in the unique designs of each hydraulic machine.

Each testing platform is equipped with high-precision measuring instruments to be suitable for both development and acceptance tests as required by the IEC 60193 standard. A direct current generator/motor is installed for each test rig that can operate in the 4 quadrants: generator in 2 directions and motor in 2 directions.
