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…
