    • Boundary layer effects on the vortex shedding in a Donaldsontype hydrofoil 

      Fontanals García, Alfred; Guardo Zabaleta, Alfredo de Jesús; Zobeiri, Amirreza; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Farhat, Mohamed; Avellan, François (2014)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      Fluid - Structure Interaction (FSI) phenomena is becoming a relevant study field for the design or revamping of hydropower plants. The generalized trend of increasing flow rates and reducing rotor blades/stay vanes thickness ...
    • Dynamic behaviour of a Francis turbine during voltage regulation in the electrical power system 

      Vagnoni, Elena; Valentín Ruiz, David; Avellan, François (2021-02-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Hydroelectric units can be operated in synchronous condenser mode to provide reactive power to the electrical power system (EPS) for voltage regulation. In this operating mode, the hydraulic turbine consumes active power ...
    • Modal behavior of a reduced scale pump-turbine impeller. Part II. Numerical Simulation 

      Valero Ferrando, Ma. del Carmen; Huang, Xingxing; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Farhat, Mohamed; Avellan, François (2010)

      A numerical simulation has been carried out to analyze the modal behavior of a reduced scale pump-turbine impeller. The simulation has been done using FEM method, in air and in water. The same boundary conditions than ...
    • Transposition of the mechanical behavior from model to prototype of Francis turbines 

      Valentín Ruiz, David; Presas Batlló, Alexandre; Valero Ferrando, Ma. del Carmen; Egusquiza Montagut, Mònica; Egusquiza Estévez, Eduard; Gomes, João; Avellan, François (Elsevier, 2020-06-01)
