Opis: Water Power Engineering - Mead Daniel W.

Excerpt from Water Power Engineering: The Theory, Investigation and Development of Water Powers
In the development of a water power project the engineer is freqently called upon to do more than design and construct the power plant. He may be required to report on the adequacy of the supply, the head and power available and the probable variations in the same, the plan for development, the cost of construction and operation, and the advisability of the investment. A study of the entire project, therefore, becomes essential, and each factor must be carefully considered in detail to assure ultimate success. Each of the features of the development is of equal importance to the commercial success of the project. The majority of the failures in water power development have occurred from causes other than structural defects, and a knowledge of these other important and controlling factors is therefore quite as essential as a knowledge of design and construction. It must be said, however, that in respect to some of these controlling factors current practice has not been what it should be. This has resulted in many over-developments and illy advised installations, from which the power generated has not been equal to that anticipated, and in many poor financial investments amounting frequently to practical failures. The engineer has given much attention to design and construction but too little attention to the other fundamental considerations mentioned above on which the success of the project depends to an equal extent.
In the preparation of this book the author has endeavored to consider, briefly at least, all fundamental principles and to point out the basis on which successful water power development depends. The method of study and investigation outlined herein was developed by the author during twenty-five years of professional practice and in his efforts to illustrate the principles underlying the subject in his lectures to the senior class in water power engineering at the University of Wisconsin. A somewhat extended acquaintance with the literature relating to water power engineering leads the author to believe that in a number of features the principles and methods described in this book are somewhat in advance of present practice.
