A pump as turbine is optimized firstly, then the distribution of gas, the vortex structure evolution, the force characteristic and energy conversion characteristic are analyzed under pure liquid and gas-liquid two-phase conditions. The result manifests that because of the existence of gas, the pressure gradient decreased and the normal flow of high-pressure fluid in the turbine is inhibited by gas. The radial force vector, the time domain value and the main frequency amplitude are all smaller than that of pure liquid condition, and hydraulic vibration is more likely to be caused by the flow uncertainty of gas. The energy conversion performance of the unit is worse.
