Flared pump-turbine

S-shape calculation time reduction

Description

Using an innovative design method, the runner SGI-TP001 was designed from an initial runner already in use. This new pump-turbine runner has a much less pronounced S-shape than the initial runner and the efficiency remains similar. This runner has been tested on the hydraulic platform TM1. Tests on the 4 quadrants have been performed.
