The updated, cornerstone engineering resource of solar energy theory and applications. Solar technologies already provide energy for heat, light, hot water, electricity, and cooling for homes, businesses, and industry. Because solar energy only accounts for one-tenth of a percent of primary energy demand, relatively small increases in market penetration can lead to very rapid growth rates in the industry???which is exactly what has been projected for coming years as the world moves away from carbon-based energy production. Solar Engineering of Thermal Processes, Third Edition provides the latest thinking and practices for engineering solar technologies and using them in various markets.

This Third Edition of the acknowledged leading book on solar engineering features:

  • Complete coverage of basic theory, systems design, and applications
  • Updated material on such cutting-edge topics as photovoltaics and wind power systems
  • New homework problems and exercises

An excellent solar energy textbook The second edition of “Solar Engineering…” is a much expanded and updated version of the original, which was already a decent textbook. It covers almost everything there is to know about engineering of solar energy systems, and the presentation is clear and well organized. The division into “basics” and “applications” sections is a very sensible way to get oriented before plunging into the depth of a specific technology, especially since solar thermal applications tend to cover a wide variety of technologies. The gradual and systematic approach makes this book a very good textbook for beginners. The wide scope makes it also a pretty good reference source for practitioners who are looking for a specific bit of information.

A MUST HAVE Sure, its technical. But anyone with a college level understanding of physics and science should be fine. Thanks to this book, I was able to deal with the engineers that ‘energized’ my barns. Maybe bit pricey, but this was an excellent investment for me and turned out to be a useful resource for the contractor I hired. Wiley books are rarely inexpensive, but always top value. I just bought some of their stock – which is one way to take some of the sting out of the price.

Solar Engineering of Thermal Processes This is written for engineers to develop skills and application of solar thermal processes. It also addresses photovoltaic design and wind energy systems. This is quite technical and not suited for someone with a casual interest wishing to enter into the green area.
