Motors as Generators for Micro-Hydro Power by Nigel Smith

cover photo

Almost any motor can be also used as a generator of electricity, including induction motors that run your washing machine.

This is a practical handbook for engineers and technicians involved in designing and installing small water-power schemes.

Instead of buying an expensive synchronous alternator, you will learn how others have used a common induction motor to generate electricity.

Chapters include

This is a small book, so topics are covered quickly. You're expected to know something about motors and power systems. If you a simple step by step guide, then this book is not for you. But if you want something that tells you how to make intelligent choices so you can be creative, this is excellent.
