This guide provides a basis for an owner’s quality assurance program for the supply and installation of electrical and mechanical equipment for hydroelectric plants. It does not include quality information for civil works.

Part A described the need for and basics of a quality program for equipment supply and installation for a typical hydroelectric project. It outlines the processes and systems needed for a quality assurance program. A quality assurance program involves both supply and installation contractors. Standards for a quality program and quality standards are described. Requirements needed for contracts and technical specifications are described and, in many cases, example requirements provided.

Part B expands on the principles and practices described in Part A, with specific guidance for each of the major pieces of electrical and mechanical equipment for a hydro-electric plant, including the turbine-generating unit, governor and excitation control systems, power train equipment, gates, and cranes. Specific best practice requirements for inspections and tests are described, along with applicable standards.
