By (author): Nader Anani
Copyright: 2019
Pages: 172
ISBN: 9781630815752

eBook £72.00

This exciting new resource presents comprehensive coverage of renewable energy technologies and resources. The book focuses on solar photovoltaic (PV), solar thermal, wind, hydro and tidal energy technologies, and describes the scientific principles and physical systems used for the harvesting and harnessing of these resources. The environmental and economic impacts of using these methods are also explained by using worked examples, exercises and suggested laboratory experiments.


Photovoltaics and the modeling of these systems are discussed in depth, along with the environmental and social issues of utilizing a specified biomass as an energy source. Readers will also learn how to effectively calculate the cost and payback time for a given renewable energy plant by understanding the factors affecting the cost of generating electricity from a renewable energy system. Simulations using ORCAD and Simulink are included. Based on the author’s experience in the field of development and delivery of renewable energy models, this book provides concise, practical solutions that will appeal to both student and professional practitioners.

Introduction: Basic Concepts; Photovoltaics Part I: Background Material; Photovoltaics Part II: Characteristics and Circuit Modeling of PV Cells; Photovoltaics Part III: PV Arrays Operation and Characteristics; Photovoltaics Part IV: PV Generating Systems; Hydro Energy; Tidal Energy; Wind Energy; BioEnergy; Costing a Renewable Energy Project.
