Introduction

Hydraulic Power Plants is a textbook for engineering students which explains the construction of hydraulic power plants. The book presents the theory of the working process for each part, i.e. the kinematics and molecular dynamics of liquids flowing through hydraulic machines and systems. The information is presented in a simple manner necessary for understanding their operational conditions and basic numerical relationships. The chapters explain concepts with several drawings and charts to aid the reader, along with relevant specifications, working examples and solved problems, which can be applied in designing practice and maintenance of hydroelectric power plants, pumping stations and pump installations.

Hydraulic Power Plants emphasizes the need of young engineers to acquire knowledge about efficiency in using the tools for the study and design for components of hydraulic power plants such as turbines, pumps and penstocks in a straightforward format, making it an ideal reference for introductory hydraulics and mechanical engineering courses.

Preface

Hydraulic machines -hydraulic turbine, pumps (water and oil types) and reversible hydraulic machines (pump-turbine) are applied in hydroelectric power plants, and water supply system as well as in thermal nuclear and pumped-storage station. In addition, pumps are widely used in the construction of hydraulic structures, such as dams, canals, river and sea ports.

The book describes the construction of hydraulic power plants and treats the theory of the working process for each part, i.e. the kinematic and dynamic of the liquid flowing through hydraulic machine and systems, only in the scope necessary for understanding their operation conditions and basic calculation relationships.

The book contains a large number of drawings and charts. It also includes the most important specification and working examples and solved problems, which can be applied in designing and maintenance of hydroelectric power plants, pumping stations and pump installation.
