Abstract
In present study, the propeller turbine of rated capacity of 5 kW is simulated for the CFD analysis to investigate effect of the cavitation on the hydro turbine. Flow analysis of the Propeller turbine is carried out by using ‘Fluent’ module available in ‘ANSYS - 14’. The flow simulation was carried out in two different flow conditions namely under pure water flow condition and cavitation flow condition. The efficiency of the propeller turbine has been calculated in order to validate the CFD results and an attempt has been made to compare these results with the experimental results obtained in earlier study. It has been observed that efficiency has been reduced with the suction head. The affected zones of the runner blade were identified based on the present study

Key-Words / Index Term
