"The power of water hasn't caught on in the national level, but can be invaluable to certain communities. "Designing and Building Mini and Micro Hydropower Schemes: A Practical Guide" is a collection of advice for those who are pursuing this sort of power for their community. Ideal for remote communities that are far from the traditional power of the modern day, these works can provide enough power for small communities, with materials and manpower that can be acquired locally. Ideal for anyone who is in charge of managing public works for their community, "Designing and Building Mini and Micro Hydropower Schemes" is a vital addition to any engineering or power management collection."
"This books' strength is that it is based on years of experience out in the field of designing micro hydro systems that work."--Dr. Arthur Williams, School of Electrical Electronic Engineering

I was pleasantly suprised by the quality of this book. The chapters are logically organized and provide a bounty of tables, charts and diaghrams. Chapters are generally arranged by individual system components including intake, headrace channel, penstock, electromechanical equipment, powerhouse building, tailrace channel and commissioning & staff training, among others. Each chapter consists of an introduction to the component, design discussion, construction procedures and technical specifications relating to the specific component. Example calculations are included as appropriate. Overall, this was a very good book.

Clearly written, the book goes into a great detail about site evaluation, hydraulics and the civil works associated with small hydro like the intake, penstock, powerhouse building, etc. Many diagrams and examples.

Good read if you're planning to build a microhydro or picohydro system.
