Pv diagram of a turbine

  1. Nov 29, 2013 #1
    We were given a project to fabricate and analyze hydroelectric power generation system. My question is what will be the shape of Pv diagram for turbine. I think it would be a point because during the process the pressure and specific volume of liquid water do not change.

    Well maybe..
    What type of turbine have you already investigated, a reaction turbine or impulse turbine?
