## Specific Speed of Turbine Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Specific Speed of Turbine = (Speed of Turbine*sqrt(Power Output of Turbine))/(Effective Head of Turbine^(5/4))
Ns = (N*sqrt(P))/(H^(5/4))
This formula uses 1 Functions, 4 Variables
Functions Used
sqrt - Squre root function, sqrt(Number)
Variables Used
Specific Speed of Turbine - (Measured in Radian per Second) - Specific Speed of Turbine is the speed which produces 1KW of power under 1m head.
Speed of Turbine - (Measured in Radian per Second) - Speed of Turbine is the angular velocity of the rotation of the turbine.
Power Output of Turbine - (Measured in Kilowatt) - The Power Output of Turbine is the amount of energy transferred in unit time by the turbine.
Effective Head of Turbine - (Measured in Meter) - Effective Head of Turbine is the net or the effective head of the turbine. It is the height difference between where the water enters the hydro system and where it leaves it.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Speed of Turbine: 200 Revolution per Minute --> 20.9439510228654 Radian per Second (Check conversion here)
Power Output of Turbine: 1986.5 Kilowatt --> 1986.5 Kilowatt No Conversion Required
Effective Head of Turbine: 25 Meter --> 25 Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Ns = (N*sqrt(P))/(H^(5/4)) --> (20.9439510228654*sqrt(1986.5))/(25^(5/4))
Evaluating ... ...
Ns = 16.6985164012262
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
16.6985164012262 Radian per Second -->159.459085661495 Revolution per Minute (Check conversion here)
159.459085661495 Revolution per Minute <-- Specific Speed of Turbine
