This workshop will cover design considerations as they apply to both low and high head micro-hydro systems. The focus will be on core concepts that may be applied to a wide range of hydro applications, including irrigation ditches that are commonly found throughout the Western U.S. Course instruction will include how to measure elevation differences and water flow rates. Several turbines will be installed and tested as part of the course participation.

Participants perform preliminary system sizing for mechanical and electrical power generation of 50-watt to 100-kilowatt capacities. This workshop combines class lectures with site tours and lab exercises. Hands-on exercises include: methods of flow measurement, determining head, analyzing and assembling small functioning systems. The class is taught by two highly experienced Micro-hydro installers/instructors.

Topics Include:
• Safety Procedures
• System Components
• Turbine Types
• AC and DC Systems
• Site Analysis
