Synopsis: * A classic title updated with a new chapter
* Practical energy provision for isolated houses and remote locations

As interest in the provision of decentralized electricity in the South increases, this practical handbook is as important as ever.

'Pumps as Turbines: A user’s guide' is a practical handbook for engineers and technicians involved in designing and installing small water-power schemes for isolated houses and communities. It concerns the use of standard pump units as a low-cost alternative to conventional turbines to provide stand-alone electricity generation in remote locations.

This book arises out of the practical experience of fieldwork in village locations in a number of countries.

This new edition includes a brand new chapter featuring a case study of a PAT (pump-as-turbine) installation. It covers how to select the type of pump based on site requirements, potential pump modifications and caution with single-phase pumps.

About the Author: Arthur Williams has worked with the Intermediate Technology Development Group on micro-hydro since 1987. He completed a Ph.D. at Nottingham Trent University on the use of pumps as turbines and continues to work there as a Senior Research Fellow. He has his own engineering consultancy, Hydro-Active Engineering, and has worked in Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Guyana.
