A hydraulic turbine is a power machine that converts water energy into mechanical energy. In most cases, this mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy by a generator, so the turbine is used for water energy utilization and power generation.
Water is one of the most important natural resources that humans can rely on in their lives and production. Our ancestors struggled with the floods long ago and learned to use water. The rule of the Dagu River in 2000 BC is still praised by people. In 37 AD, the Chinese invented the blast equipment driven by water wheels - the water platoon. The Chinese created the water mill in 260-270 AD, and invented the water mill driven by the water wheel in the 220-300 AD. These hydraulic machines are simple in structure and easy to manufacture. The disadvantages are cumbersome, low output and low efficiency. The rational development and utilization of water resources on a large scale is after the development of modern industry and related technologies such as power generation and shipping.
The comprehensive development and utilization of water resources refers to the comprehensive utilization of river water resources in flood control, irrigation, shipping, power generation and aquatic products through the construction of water conservancy projects.
China's hydropower development equipment business also flourished after the establishment of PRC. In 1975, China could only design and manufacture 75,000 kilowatts of Xin'anjiang Hydropower Station. China has been able to design and manufacture a mixed flow turbine generator set with a single unit capacity of 700,000 kilowatts and an axial flow propeller type hydroelectric generating unit with a single unit capacity of 170,000 kilowatts. The design and manufacturing level of Chinese hydraulic equipment has reached the world's advanced level. Our design and manufacture of hydropower equipment is exported to the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Turkey, Yugoslavia, Vietnam and other countries, and has been welcomed by these countries.
