Force Analysis of Ring Gate Based on ANSYS


Article Preview

Ring gate of Ahai hydropower Station is known to the highest ring gate in the world. In this paper, it is calculated to the driving loads of the Ahai ring gate by six hydraulic servomotors during a closure without automatic control (i.e. in case of a breakdown of the electrical control system), analyzed the behavior of the operating system of the ring gate closure with the water discharge and closure with three wicket gates not synchronized (i.e. three wicket gates remained accidentally in open position), and finally shown to how the 6 servomotors are synchronized on the basis of the driving loads. There are proved to The feasibility and the credibility of this system of ring gate by using ANSYS to a case.
