The proposed will be the fourth edition of what has become the acknowledged leading book covering solar engineering. The book presents the basics of solar energy and how we get energy from the sun then goes on to cover the types of technologies used to harvest this solar energy, store it and deliver it as needed using technologies such as photovoltaics, solar heaters, and cells. Finally the book explores the various applications of these technologies and how they can be used in various market sectors. There will be a new chapter added at the beginning of this edition which will cover a simulation problem that will allow student to apply the theory to real world systems. Other simulation problems will be created by the author and added to a student web-site to expose them to various real-world problems such as a solar domestic hot water system, a house heating system, a commercial solar heating application, a photovoltaic system for a house, etc. As with the prior editions the book will include a large number of homework problems and exercises and a solutions manual will be provided.

A leading authority on solar-heat collector technology, John A. Duffie is professor emeritus in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Wisconsin and is a fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He has published more than 60 research papers, contributed to many symposia on solar systems, and is a former president of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). He is co-author of several widely used books on solar heat systems and thermal engineering and has been editor-in-chief of the respected Journal of Solar Energy since 1985. In 1948, Duffie received an M.A. in chemical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Wisconsin in 1951. In 1977, he visited Australia as a Fulbright-Hayes Scholar. In 1983, Duffie's Solar Energy Laboratory, at the University of Wisconsin, received the first Achievement through Action Award from ISES, and in 1987, ISES awarded Duffie the Farrington Daniels Award.

John A. Duffie (deceased) was Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering and past Director of the Solar Energy Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.William A. Beckman is the Ouweneel-Bascom Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Solar Energy Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
