A most concise and integral reference on MH applications This highly rated manual, covers just about every practical and tangible theoretical introduction to the full design and/up to implementation cycle of MH projects, all in about 370 pages. It is important that it was written and amply illustrated not only with detailed schematics, but also with actual pictures from original installations in developing countries, which makes a viable aid in comprehending the “actual picture”. The chapters covered detail a syllabus in: Components and Design of an MH Scheme, Cost benefit estimations, Hydrology and site survey, Flow prediction, Civil works and operational parts (all aspects from Weirs to Penstocks), Commercial engineering, Turbines (including reverse pumps), Governing, Drive systems, a very thorough presentation of the -cumbersome- Electrical Power System aspects, along with Operational, Maintenance, Financial and Commissioning aspects. Should there be something more for an engineer to wish for, would be more info on…

Essential Reading on the Subject This book describes all the aspects involved in gettting a micro hydro plant running. It has the right blend of “The birds eye view” on the subject, very useful to people, new to the subject as well as “earth worm view”: You can use this use this book as a guide to select the right kind of drive pulley for you plant.
