Computer Controlled Experimental Impulse Turbine.
Computer Controlled Experimental Impulse Turbine EXERCISES AND PRACTICAL POSSIBILITIES Some Practical Possibilities of the Unit: 1.-Visual examination of a small turbine. 2.-Comparison of turbine performance, including specific consumption, when using: Throttle control. Nozzle control. 3.-Production of torque/speed and power/speed curves. 4.-Determination of the isentropic efficiency of a turbine and plotting the end states on a temperature/entropy diagram. 5.-Application of the First Law to a simple open system undergoing a steady flow process. 6.-Construction of retardation curve and the determination of resisting torques due to bearing frictions, disc friction and windage, at different speeds. 7.-Demonstration of cooling by expansion. Other possible practices: 8.-Sensors calibration. Practices to be done by PLC Module (PLC-PI)+PLC Control Software: 9.-Control of the HTIC unit process through the control interface box without the computer. 10.-Visualization of all the sensors values used in the HTIC unit process. 11.-Calibration of all sensors included in the HTIC unit process. 12.-Hand on of all the actuators involved in the HTIC unit process. 13.-Realization of different experiments, in automatic way, without having in front the unit. (This experiment can be decided previously). 14.-Simulation of outside actions, in the cases do not exist hardware elements. (Example: test of complementary tanks, complementary industrial environment to the process to be studied, etc). 15.-PLC hardware general use and manipulation. 16.-PLC process application for HTIC unit. 17.-PLC structure. 18.-PLC inputs and outputs configuration. 19.-PLC configuration possibilities. 20.-PLC program languages. 21.-PLC different programming standard languages. 22.-New configuration and development of new process. 23.-Hand on an established process. 24.-To visualize and see the results and to make comparisons with the HTIC unit process. 25.-Possibility of creating new process in relation with the HTIC unit. 26.-PLC Programming Exercises. 27.-Own PLC applications in accordance with teacher and student requirements.
