Glossary defines common hydropower terms

Hydro Review magazine is offering a Hydropower Glossary, a 12-page booklet containing definitions for about 300 terms commonly used in conjunction with hydropower.

The glossary can be a useful tool to those new to hydro, as well as a reference for industry veterans, according to members of the magazine’s advisory board, which helped develop the definitions.

Terms defined in the glossary cover a variety of themes, including civil structures, electrical issues, environment, equipment, and hydraulics.

To order single copies of the glossary for US$25, contact Glenda Harp, (1) 918-831-9776; E-mail: glendah@pennwell.com. Discounts are available for quantities of ten or more.
