Surge tank :- A surge tank is the small reservoir or tank. It is open at the top. It is installed near Vale house of turbine. It avoids water hammer effect when load on turbine reduces. (It stores immediately the rejected water. It avoids cavity effect when load on turbine increases. (It supply immediately the water)
