Motors as Generators for Micro Hydro Power by Nigel Smith 2nd edition. This useful and practical handbook is a guide to the use of induction motors for electricity generation in remote locations and arises out of the practical experience of manufacturers and installers of induction generators working in village locations in a number of countries. The use of motors as generators is now well proven and promises to be an important element in establishing self-sustaining local capacity for village-scale hydro in developing countries. Micro-hydro is a valuable source of energy for rural industries and village electrification schemes. It offers potential to remote communities with applications in village lighting, mechanized food processing, and the supply of power to small-scale industrial activities. Chapters are;
Advantages and disadvantages of induction generators
Induction machine construction and operation
Selection of an induction motor for use as a generator
Excitation capacitor requirements
Operating voltage and frequency
The effect of load on generator output
Single phase output from a three phase machine
Protection safety and earthing
