This information is provided as a service to those wanting to try to build their own hydraulic ram pump. The data from our experiences with one of these home-made hydraulic ram pumps is listed in Table 4 near the bottom of this document.
Canyon Hydro has developed this Guide to Hydropower to help you gain a basic understanding of how "home power" micro-hydro systems work, and what goes into the design.
In order to calculate the amount of power available at your site, you will need the following information: Head: The vertical distance (in feet) from the water intake to the turbine.
Canyon Hydro designs and manufactures small hydro systems ranging from 4kW to 25MW. Each system is designed and built at our manufacturing facilites in the USA.
Hydroelectric power is widely used by many major utility suppliers in the form of large hydroelectric dams. Of course all the hydroelectric dams in the world won't help provide power to a home or village outside the reach of the electric power grid ."
