Computational fluid dynamics simulations were performed on Francis turbine using Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) with k-ω SST turbulence model. Simulations were conducted at the turbine's best efficiency point with a Reynolds number of 2.01×10- 7 . Water injection was admitted from the runner cone in the stream-wise direction. The aim of this process was to investigate the influence of water injection on the turbine performance and the pressure pulsation. The water injection did not affect the nominal value of the turbine's power generation. Straight vortex rope was observed at the centerline of the draft tube. Moreover, helix-shaped vortex ropes were obtained near the draft tube surface. The water injection expands the central vortex rope, but it did not suppress or disrupt the helix-shaped peripheral vortex rope near the draft tube surface. The pressure fluctuation became less regular after the water injection, but the fluctuation level remained similar.
