Hydro power plant is the source of renewable energy which leads to reduction in burning of fossil fuels. So the environment is no longer polluted. This project depicts how sediment erosion occurs in Kaplan turbine and the various components of Kaplan turbine where actually erosion takes place. It reduces efficiency [7] and life of hydro power turbine but also causes problems in operations and maintenance. We conducted some necessary test on Kaplan turbine in fluid power laboratory. We are doing this experiment to know about the possible problems and errors which can appear during the mechanical analysis of low head Kaplan turbine with view of the runner draft interaction. Turbine flows have been focused earlier we have also concentrated on blade operation. This paper gives report on unsteady pressure measurement in runner blade of Kaplan turbine .We also analyse torque and load bearing measurement on corresponding prototype when operated at best possible efficiency.
