As part of FDB’s ambitions on technology development for the energy business a major testing on pipe transients takes place in Stavanger. IRIS, the International Research Institute of Stavanger, hosts the testing and provides the flow loop used, see link for…Read More
Developed by Flow Design Bureau, Statkraft and troms Kraft, DiffCon the injection system enables Francis hydropower turbines to run at part load without the effects of heavy lifetime reducing hydraulic condition. Through the jets in the draft tube, the spin in the draft tube…Read More
Developed by Statkraft and Flow Design Bureau, the HydroCord system is more than a condition monitoring system. A holistic view of the hydrodynamic state of the power system enables optimization of both maintenance and production planning.
The video is produced by students Katinka Rosbach (producer),…Read More
Our summer internship candidate, final year graduate student at NTNU.Trondheim Eirik M. Hansen, completed two tasks connected FDB’s R&D activities on hydropower. For both studies Hansen used the software Flowmaster from Mentor Graphics for numerical simulation of flow dynamics. One aimed at understanding the…Read More
FDB is proud to announce that we developed a new LabVIEW programming architecture. All new programming projects will be executed using this architecture. It uses a so-called queued message handler and separates the code in to modules each handling logical subdivisions of the code….Read More
