Abstract:

The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance and criteria pertinent to the design and selection of hydroelectric power plant mechanical equipment and systems. This manual is applicable to all HQUSACE elements, major subordinate commands, districts, laboratories, and separate field operating activities having responsibility for civil works projects. This manual discusses many items related to the planning and design of powerhouse mechanical equipment and systems. It is not intended as a comprehensive, step-by-step solution to powerhouse mechanical design, but as an experience-oriented guide and a basis for resolving differences of opinion among competent engineers at all levels.
