This article deals with a possibility of how to determine a power dissipation in a rotating machine. It divides losses in three parts according to their origin – losses arising around the rotating disc, in bearings, and by a friction of a shaft surface due to viscosity. A precise determination of the power dissipation is important when evaluating the efficiency of the whole device. The procedure is graphically illustrated on the example of a single-stage experimental turbine.
