Demand for renewable-energy technologies is growing rapidly, requiring a greater number of skilled system technicians. Photovoltaic Systems is a comprehensive guide to the design and installation of several types of residential and commercial PV systems.
The content covers the principles of PV electricity and how to effectively incorporate it into electrical systems. Numerous illustrations explain the concepts behind how PV arrays and other components operate, and photographs of actual installations show how components are integrated together to form complete systems. Content also covers the topics needed for solar installer certification by NABCEP. Photovoltaic systems is the essential guide to all aspects of PV systems.
This second edition updates electrical requirements per the 2008 NEC® and expands the coverage of sun position, shading analysis, and computer modeling of system performance expectations.

Mr.Jim Dunlop was encouraged early to pursue a career in the electrical field by his high school electrical shop teacher George Patrick Shultz (author of several early NJATC textbooks), and when he attended the University of Florida, he planned to study electrical engineering. Jim’s early experiences, however, led him into renewable energy systems. He was also influenced by courses on solar energy systems and direct energy conversion taught by renewable energy pioneer Dr. Erich Farber, founder of the University of Florida’s Solar Energy Research Park. Beginning his career at the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC), Jim became involved in the development and evaluation of photovoltaic (PV) systems, which had recently been included in the 1984 National Electrical Code®. Over his 20 year career at FSEC under Director Jerry Ventre, Jim was involved in developing curricula and delivering numerous training programs on PV systems. In 2001, he led FSEC’s efforts to attain national accreditation for its PV training programs. From 2001 to 2002, Jim served as the charter technical committee chairperson for the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). As of 2005, Jim is again leading this committee. This position involves developing candidate entry requirements, task analyses, examinations, and study guides for a national PV-installer certification program. In 2001, Jim became the first Master Trainer in PV systems certified by the Institute for Sustainable Power worldwide. In addition to creating training manuals and instructor materials, he has published over 50 papers and technical reports on the design, testing, and evaluation of PV systems and equipment. Mr. Jim Dunlop currently serves as a Curriculum Specialist for the NJATC and is involved in developing the distributed-generation curriculum.
