Introducing a Reliable Green Technology That Can Help Improve System Performance

Solely centered on photovoltaic (PV) system sizing and the tools used for PV system analysis and design, Photovoltaic System Design: Procedures, Tools and Applications emphasizes the importance of using solar PV technologies for a number of end-use applications, and examines growing interest in solar PV-based projects on a global scale. Written for the system designer/project developer/manufacturer dedicated to correctly sizing a PV system, the book outlines various aspects of PV technology, applications, and programs. It describes key attributes, system design requirements, influence on climatic and site-specific parameters, utilization of simulation procedures, and expected performance. The author includes actual case studies for system designing procedures adopted by various companies and provides a framework for working through both direct and indirect variables under the actual system designing phase.

A vital resource essential to your collection, this book:

  • Touches upon the role of renewable energy technologies in a holistic energy scenario
  • Makes a clear categorization of off-grid and on-grid PV applications and discusses advantages and limitations
  • Considers the potential of solar radiation availability
  • Introduces PV system sizing procedures via the modern use of simulation softwares
  • Presents an analysis of actual PV power plant sites when designed via the use of simulation software
  • Determines the weak links in a PV system
  • Brings out the importance of capacity building initiatives vis-à-vis the available range of PV simulation software, tools, and procedures

Photovoltaic System Design: Procedures, Tools and Applications provides a clear understanding of the issues that can affect the operation and smooth running of PV facilities and aids in determining photovoltaic system sizing procedures from a variety of end-use considerations. The book encompasses civil, mechanical, electrical, geotechnical, and power systems engineering and is useful to industry professionals involved in solar power plant design.
