Micro turbines provide a clean and efficient solution to direct mechanicaldrives markets such as the air conditioning and compression.The project involves the following tasks:Collect data from different sources both the primarysources which include observing and recording experimental data and secondary sources suchas engineering books and journals[CITATION Jef16 \p 356 \l 2057 ]. All the essential variableswhich are determined or measured must be identified which involves identifying a controlvolume, listing all assumptions and applying appropriate conservation equations. Identifyingthe Gaps – determine relationships and data that are missing and develop or otherwise findappropriate relationships and identifying the solution strategy.IntroductionThe main focus of this project is to offer some practice in the predicting and analysing thedesign of the micro-turbine. Other objectives of the project include: To predict theperformance of the micro-hydro turbine. To determine the torque and power which isgenerated by the turbine as a function of the rotational speed[CITATION Ste17 \p 78 \l 2057 ].
Surname2Micro turbines arecomparativelynew turbine which can produce both electricity and heat ona very small scale. Micro turbines provide a clean and efficient solution to direct mechanicaldrives markets such as the air conditioning and compression.Themicro-hydro-turbine has the following advantages: they are cost effective they cost lessthan the home wind turbines which generates the same amount of electrical power. They areconsidered to be environmental friendly sources of energy. They can continue operating dayand night under any wind conditions. They are intrusive and efficient[CITATION Pet131 \p 173 \l 2057 ]. On the other hand, the micro turbines have drawbacks such as: during it installationone must be very careful not to harm the environment and ensure that the environment is leftas it was before installation, some extra costs are incurred to ensure that the micro turbinesare accessible.Different assumptions will be made during the project some of which are very clear whileothers become apparent only during the reconciling results from the analysis with resultsfrom the experiment[CITATION Mic165 \p 118 \l 2057 ].Work to be done for the project to be completedThis project to be completed it involves Turbine Wheel Description, and Initial Analysis Thisphase of the project involves a description of the problem, hardware (nozzle, and turbinewheel parameters, water supply) and physics of the turbine assigned to investigate[CITATIONMJM12 \p 82 \l 2057 ].There is a lot of research will be carried out on the Micro turbines which I was assigned toanalysis and come up with the equations to be applied and the principles to be applied.The following must be achieved for the project to be completed:Determine the turbine performance by establishing an experiment procedures
