Book Synopsis



A comprehensive training resource for producing electric power from the sun.

Producing electricity from the sun using photovoltaic (PV) systems has become a major industry worldwide. But designing, installing and maintaining such systems requires knowledge and training, and there have been few easily accessible, comprehensive guides to the subject.

Now, with Photovoltaics: Design and Installation Manual , a world-class solar energy training and education provider--Solar Energy International (SEI)--has made available the critical information to successfully design, install and maintain PV systems. The book contains an overview of photovoltaic electricity and a detailed description of PV system components, including PV modules, batteries, controllers and inverters. It also includes chapters on sizing photovoltaic systems, analyzing sites and installing PV systems, as well as detailed appendices on PV system maintenance, troubleshooting and solar insolation data for over 300 sites around the world. Used worldwide as the textbook in SEI's PV Design & Installation workshops, topics covered include:

  • The basics of solar electricity
  • PV applications and system components
  • Solar site analysis and mounting
  • Stand-alone and PV/generator hybrid system sizing
  • Utility-interactive PV systems
  • Component specification, system costs and economics
  • Case studies and safety issues

Photovoltaics guarantees that those wanting to learn the skills of tapping the sun's energy can do so with confidence.
