Produktbeschreibung
Solar and wind energy systems have flourished throughout the United States in the last few years as the public calls for reduced dependence on foreign oil. This has stimulated the growth of an industry that provides wind and solar systems, and many small businesses have sprung up to install these systems. Training programs and courses are now ubiquitous as the demand for designers and installers increases. This book provides a resource for engineering students interested in the design and operation of solar electric, solar thermal, wind, and other renewable systems. While there are many good reference books on power systems and renewable energy, this book integrates the engineering basics of existing power systems with design problems and solutions using renewable energy sources. The author includes chapters on concepts and background review. Details of photovoltaic and wind systems as interconnected or stand-alone designs, estimating and predicting energy production using industry distribution functions and online programs, and concepts of temperature coefficients, synchronization, power conversion, and system protection are explained and illustrated. The book is a very "hands-on" practical guide, structured to motivate you to experience the design and installation process.
