P1827 - Guide for Electrical & Control Design of Hydroelectric Water Conveyance Facilities

This guide provides a description of the terminology as well as the design practices and principles used in modern electrical and control design of water conveyance facilities associated with hydroelectric projects. The practices and principles are not covered by other guides associated with hydroelectric facilities. This guide is for use by practicing engineers and provides guidance for facility owners and operators. The guide does not cover every possible variation that can be encountered, but it provides a working familiarity with the terminology and principles involved.This guide describes the electrical and control design of water conveyance facilities associated with hydroelectric projects including associated penstocks, valves, and gates. The guide includes guidance to plan and prepare designs; however, it does not include details of installation, operation or maintenance guidelines and methodologies. This guide is applicable to design of new facilities and rehabilitation or replacement of existing facilities.
