Solar Energy: Theory, Standards & Practice, First Edition provides a thorough introduction to the theory, design, installation, and maintenance of solar electric and solar thermal systems. The text opens with an overview of renewable energy systems, including key concepts, essential components, and the functionality of photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating solar power (CSP) systems. The authors then explore specific design strategies to help students apply these concepts and integrate components to engineer stable PV and CSP systems. The text also provides an up-to-date overview of current solar technology being deployed in the mainstream market, as well as evolving technology and next-generation innovations students are likely to encounter as their careers progress. References to relevant industry standards found throughout the text help students become familiar with guidelines they will need to know and follow as working professionals, including NAHB green standards, federal ETA guidelines, NABCEP exam objectives, and the 2011 National Electrical Code[registered] (NEC[registered]). Suitable for courses on green building, alternative energy, electrical engineering, and more, Solar Energy: Theory, Standards & Practice, First Edition, is an ideal resource to prepare students for success in this dynamic, rapidly expanding field.
