The thesis deals with the process of planning and constructing a measuring system that is adapted for Pelton and axial turbine. Further it is shown how measuring system is designed, how data acquisition of measuring data is designed and what the protocol of determining operational characteristics of water turbines are. This measuring system is specifically designed for Pelton and axial turbine. The thesis also shows how pressure, frequency and gauge sensors are connected to a measuring system.
Firstly, the current state of the measuring system was diagnosed. It was estimated that the current system is unable to quickly switch between Pelton and axial turbine. Secondly, the upgrade of the measuring system was planned. In the process of the upgrade all the sensors and the data acquisition card were connected into a manageable order. Once the measuring system was connected, it was tested if working correctly. When we were sure all the sensors in the measuring system were working properly, final tests were run to show the proper functioning of the system and operational characteristics of both observed turbines.
