Features

  • Presents techniques for building and optimizing structures with local solar energy systems
  • Describes active solar systems such as photovoltaics and parabolic concentrators as well as passive solar systems and covers such things as optimal materials to use, daylighting, shading, solar blinds, rock and water energy storage and more
  • Provides more than 100 MATLAB® files on website for further modeling and analysis
  • Explains how solar energy is attenuated through the atmosphere, including dimming, scattering, clouds, air temperature, etc., and how to model for it
  • Discusses the best ways to site a solar structure considering exposure, elevation, slope, clearance, wind protection and more
