At medium- and high-head hydropower schemes, desanding facilities are deployed to reduce the sediment load and particle size in the turbine water and thus to reduce hydro-abrasion at steel parts in the turbine water system and at hydraulic machinery. The intensity of hydro-abrasion is directly linked with the trapping efficiency of the desanding facilities. An extended design concept for desanding facilities was developed based on a combination of field measurements and CFD simulations. In particular, the consideration of inlet- and outlet flow conditions of the desander basin allows for optimisation of existing desanders and robust design of new facilities. Show more
