Welcome to the Homepage of IGHEM
the International Group for Hydraulic Efficiency Measurement!IGHEM is an independent group of people involved in hydraulic power plant efficiency measurements.
The association is open to
qualified individuals interested in measuring those hydraulic parameters
used to determine the efficiency of hydraulic machinery. Members are expected
to contribute actively to the biennial conferences of IGHEM with discussions,
presentations or posters. They should be willing to exchange openly information
Aims of the group
IGHEM deals with all pressure, flow and efficiency measurements necessary to determine the energetic performance of hydraulic machines on site, such as flow rate, head, specific energy, head loss etc. It supports specialists through
The group was formed by a merger of the former International Current Meter Group (ICMG) and le Groupe des Practiciens de la Méthode Thermodynamique (GPMT). IGHEM was founded by members of the ICMG- and GPMT-groups in Zürich, January 31, 1995.
