If you are seriously interested in microhydro power one of the two following books needs to be on your bookshelf! Both books cover the same topics and they can be substituted by each other.

In case you want to start with a freely available book, have a look at Penche, Layman's guide on how to develop a small hydro site.

For more literature on hydropower look at the literature overview.
