Course Description

Applied Hydraulics Hydropower

This course covers the basic concepts of water hydraulics as applied to hydropower generation. The course is introductory in nature and is intended to provide basic review of fluid static and hydrodynamic conditions as applied to micro- and mini-hydro power generation systems. Focus will be on the utilization of the conservation of energy principle to establishing the conditions that will impact the selection of a hydropower generation system along with the assessment of how to harness energy from flowing fluids (water). Prerequisites: MATH 102 3 credit (2 lecture hour, 2 laboratory hours), spring semester
