Hydropower Engineering Handbook now available for free public download

With many in the hydroelectric field still using the data it contains, the Hydropower Engineering Handbook is now available for free download online.

The handbook was originally published in 1991 by McGraw-Hill and “addresses a broad cross section of engineering topics, relates them directly to hydropower development, and details relevant sources of information for each topic.”

The 667-page handbook was edited by John S. Gulliver, PhD, and Roger E.A. Arndt, PhD, with St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory. It is organized around an interdisciplinary team approach to successful hydropower development. The content is intended to give mechanical and civil engineers and environmental scientists in-depth overviews of essential hydropower processes and technologies.

Chapters cover:

  • Preliminary Studies: Hydrology, Hydraulics and Costs
  • Small Dam Design
  • Hydraulic Turbines
  • Hydraulic Conveyance Design
  • Powerhouse Design and Small Hydropower Project Cost Estimates
  • Case Studies in Facility Design
  • Ecological Effects of Hydropower Facilities
  • Economic and Financial Analysis
  • Plant Maintenance and Operation
  • System Planning and Operation
