Small Hydropower PDF Summary

Small Hydropower: Design and Analysis presents a comprehensive guide to the design, operation and maintenance of small hydropower plants. Using detailed diagrams and illustrations, the book examines the classifications, components, equipment, feasibility and analysis of each aspect of SHPs. Following a broad introduction, the book discusses classification approaches based on head, discharge, capacity, etc., analyzes site selection, and gives an overview of key development stages. SHP components for civil engineering works and electro-mechanical equipment have dedicated chapters that are followed by a chapter on how to design new components for the civil, mechanical and electrical aspects of a plant. Subsequent chapters provide guidance on economic and financial analysis, environmental impact, troubleshooting and diagnosis in operating plants, and refurbishment and upgradation of SHPs, when and why this is needed, and how to approach it. Finally, several case studies provide real-world examples of SHPs in operation, giving readers insight into the practical needs of operating SHPs. Addresses all aspects of small hydropower, including civil works, hydro-mechanical, power generation and distribution, costing and financial analysis, environmental impact, and plant refurbishment and upgrading Provides dedicated chapters on the environmental and ecological impacts of small hydropower plants Assesses common problems in SHPs and provides tools for troubleshooting, diagnosis and solutions, including for site-specific issues Presents detailed real-world case studies showing the application of key aspects of SHP design, operation, maintenance, environmental and ecological assessment, and refurbishment
