General Information

It is a laboratory in which small and micro scale turbine experiments and tests which are important to evaluate country’s hydroelectric potential. Turbines capable to work with heights of 1-15 meters and flowrates of 1-900 lt/sec can be tested in this laboratory. Laboratory offers to test turbines in natural conditions. Desired flowrates can be obtained by 5 centrifuge pumps, laboratory set can be altered according to testing turbine. Overall system can be controlled from the control room with the assistance of control system. Laboratory is set with the help of DPT (state planning organization).
