From the published researches, the compressible cavitation structure is usually considered as bubble cavitation. So from cavitation number [sigma] = 0.171-0.120, cavitation status inside the blade channels experiences a transformation process of cloud cavitation to bubble cavitation status.
This result proved that temperature has a large impact upon the bubble cavitation energy and power.
