Application of TURBOdesign-1 for the development of an in-line type hydraulic turbine for micro power generation.
Kubota have been developing reverse running pump turbines for the small-scale hydraulic turbine power generation for 15 years. They have delivered the machines to one hundred or more power plants in developing countries. The systems are based on pump technology such as the fluid dynamics, the manufacturing and engineering techniques which have been developed over many years at Kubota.
Dr. S. Miyauchi, the Section Manager at Kubota explained;
"As a result of the development which included the use of TURBOdesign-1, the line-up series for the new in-line type hydraulic turbine for micro power generation was developed within a very short period of time. The development of this technology has allowed us to expand extensively".
"We appreciate TURBOdesign-1 for the development of our new machines which were previously not part of our product range."
